El cap jump Can't Post

Not sure if my post got deleted or I just forgot to hit post. Don't think its too sketchy to ask this question since the jump was years agnost and I doubt the nps rangers are scouring the forums looking to bust someone who's act is right at the statue of limitations. Anyway, does anyone know the jumper at the end of Valley Uprising? It's a tracking jump which stands out cuzhes are all WS jumps. Also like I said its the very last jump featured in the film. Who is that guy/girl??

Dean potter. I doubt they'll come after him as he died two years ago yesterday.

No one jumps El Cap anymore. Or anything in the park. It's illegal. They all go to Europe or Moab.

Are you a cop? You have to tell us, right? Otherwise it's entrapment? LaughShockedCrazy

Yosemite is beat out. Ghetto and no one ever jumps there anymore.... It's a pile of garbage.... Europe is the place to be.

That jump in the end of Valley Uprising was 100% CGI produced.

Alex honnold told a funny story about climbing half dome in the middle of the night and having a base jumper go screaming past him at terminal. That would be pretty unnerving for the climber. It's not like he was free soling, he was obvioously tied in but a whipper off half dome at 2:00a.m is still scary stuff IMHO.
