But this man appears to have taken the art of reckless dedication to new heights. Perched on a rock column half a mile above the Grand Canyon, he had clearly found the perfect vantage point to record the spectacular Arizona sunset. Indeed his position was so precarious that he, rather than the setting sun, soon became the centre of attention for other tourists. But onlookers realised how he had actually reached the rock column only when the time came for him to pack up and go home. In what appears to have been a death- defying stunt, recorded on camera by a Dutch tourist, the photographer bundled up his gear, tucked it under his left arm and leapt the 8ft void separating him from the main land mass at The Grand Viewpoint on the canyon’s South Rim. For added effect, the spectators reported, he was wearing flip-flops. He scrambled for several seconds, they said, before reaching safety.
Earlier, they had watched him relaxing and drinking a six-pack of beer as he waited on the rock column for the sun to go down. The man who took the pictures, marketing consultant Hans van de Vorst, 47, said: ‘When we arrived he was just taking in the scenery and people were discussing how he managed to get on there in the first place. Nobody even bothered with the sunset – everyone’s eyes were on this man as they wondered how he was going to get off the rock. He looked really relaxed and casually stood up before jumping across the gap. There was complete silence as he packed his things up and then a few gasps when he jumped.
