A few mildly bonkers online videos to get you in the mood for the weekend

'I Believe I Can Fly' Trailer
Actually a trailer for a full-on adventure film, subtitled 'flight of the frenchies' this is 14 minutes of quietly deranged and strangely mellow BASE jumping lunacy with a bit of slack-lining thrown in for good measure.
Highlining The Totem Pole
If you've heard of the Totem Pole, a sea-stack in Tasmania, it's most likely as a result of Paul Pritchard's horrific accident there. Here it is in stunning slacklining action.
Dean Potter Highlines Yosemite Falls
Blimey, it's that man Dean Potter again, this time 1400 feet up above a frothing waterfall. Quite mad and stunning with it.
Ueli Steck's Triple Speed Cliimbing Record
You might think Swiss Machine, Ueli Steck's record times on the classic alpine north faces look impressive on paper but this video brings home just how fast he actually has to move to set those times. Humbling. And epic scenery too.
