Insane picture of an insane guy jumping over an insane abyss

Illustration for article titled Insane picture of an insane guy jumping over an insane abyss

Redditor and adventurer Orenisham took this amazing photo climbing up Ridjim Assaf on Jebel Rum, Jordan. It reminds me of the The Word of God, the second challenge of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: "Only in the footsteps of God, shall he proceed." He explains that the local call this siq jump:

A 'siq' is what the locals there call these massive ravines that cut through the sandstone mountains - like the one he's jumping over. 'Jebel Rum' means "Mount Rum" and is tallest peak there, and 'Ridjim Assaf' is the name of one of the climbing/scrambling routes up the mountain.
