extreme photgrapher on a rock outcropping in the Grand Canyon

I was simply stunned seeing this guy standing on this solitary rock IN the Grand Canyon. The canyon's depth is 900 meters here. The rock on the right is next to the canyon and safe.

Watching this guy on his thong sandals, with a camera and a tripod I asked myself 3 questions:

1. How did he climb that rock?
2. Why not take that sunset picture on that rock to the right, which is perfectly safe?
3. How will he get back?

I called this guy, and he just said .......

Why in heck would he do that?
Why in heck would that guy do such a thang?

After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon he packed his things (having only one hand available) and prepared himself for the jump. This took about 2 minutes. At that point he had the full attention of the crowd.

risky behavior as the photographer jumps from one rock outcropping to another

At this point, he is at the point of no return, leaning into the jump. After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon he packed his things (having only one hand available) and prepared himself for the jump. This took about 2 minutes. At that point he had the full attention of the crowd. After that, he jumped on his thong sandals. The canyon's depth is 900 meters here.

He is in mid jump. flying across the gap with 900 meters (1800 feet) below

Now you can see that the adjacent rock is higher so he tried to land lower, which is quite steep and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.

with all of his stuff in his left hand, he jumps and grabs the rock ledge with his right hand, and climbs up to the flat area

We've come to the end of this little story. Look carefully at the photographer. He has a camera, a tripod and also a plastic bag, all on his shoulder or in his left hand. Only his right hand is available to grab the rock and the weight of his stuff is a problem.

He lands low on this flip flops both his right hand and right foot slips away... At that moment I take this shot.

He pushes his body against the rock. He waits for a few seconds, throws his stuff on the rock, climbs and walks away.

What a confident guy. No climbing equipment or ropes, just thongs and an armful of equipment. What a guy!
