Bridge over Bixby Creek.



I remember that video posted here of the wasted dude B.A.S.E. jumping off this bridge - right in front of a CHP officer. Upon seeing it, it sure doesn't look all that high for parachuting ( you certainly wouldn't want to fall off it, though )

Very clever.....all roadway and traffic loads are resolved within the bridge structure.

can't wait for the opening on Labor Day 2013

We rapped the southern end of the Bixby Cr. Br. in 1969, landing in the iceplant. Cool first free rappel!

Hey Mouse From Merced,

How long of a rope did you need to rap off the Bixby Creek Bridge? I'm curious because of that guy who B.A.S.E. jumped off of it.

My first "free" ( read "overhanging" ) rappel was also off a bridge - an abandoned bridge in the San Bernardino mountains ( used to be a bridge on Hwy 330, but later bypassed ). Ropes were only 150' then, and a rap off that bridge was exactly that. We just rapped right off the end of the rope. Good thing we didn't know enough to tie a knot in the end of it, that would have really complicated things.

We were still in our "let's test the system, to see if it works" phase.

Starting at 2:30, the Golgen Gate, free soloed :



I also find the Millau Viaduct awesome. What the picture doesn't convey is the height of this bridge (it's huge !):
