Video: American daredevil flies through 7-meter crack in Chinese mountain

American daredevil Jeb Corliss recently landed an incredible wing suit jump that was dubbed “The Flying Dagger”.

Seven meters might sound like a pretty big gap, but it’s a different story when you’re travelling at nearly 200kph head first through a mountain fissure. That’s exactly what the New Mexico native Jeb Corliss, 37, did last Saturday on Mount Jianglang in China and to say his feat was impressive would be an understatement…

“It was the single gnarliest thing I’ve ever done in my life, without a doubt,” Corliss told NBC News after his jump.

Here’s what Corliss had to say on Facebook: “Yesterday I covered 3 football fields in 5 seconds and at about half way the walls were about 25ft wide. I had to side slip as I flew because the crack was crooked and there was turbulence.

“I had to pull as I exited the crack in full flight or I would not make it to the only landing area that was behind me. Once I committed to the landing area there were no outs. I had a 15 second canopy ride and just made it to the beginning of the landing zone.

“I have been jumping for over 15 years and I have never done anything more committing and technical in my life. I am so happy...”

Here's a look at Jeb's training in Switzerland...
