Video: Proximity Wingsuiting Through a Tight Couloir

Proximity wingsuiting is one of the most dangerous sports out there. When you're whizzing past rocks at greater-than-highway speeds, any mistakes will almost certainly be fatal. Luckily, Hartman Rector didn't make any mistakes during this flight near Salt Lake City, Utah.
