get more from BRO

Clips of the Week: Riding High features some brave souls attempting feats of ascent far beyond our comfort level. From high-lining between two hot air balloons to scaling the second tallest building in the world, these people have a knack for heights that will leave you thankful for GoPro.

This group of insane high-liners attempt a nauseating cross between two hot air balloons, complete with a small umbrella for safety.

Almost sixty years after the first ascent of Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov jumped off the north face of the mountain, the highest base jump ever recorded at 23,668 feet above sea level.

Watch as two men (illegally) climb up the Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world. Their look down from the top is enough to make you grip your armrest.

And finally the Bridge Day 2013 compilation of base jumpers at the New River Gorge.
