A member of the "Exit Point" amateur rope-jumping group jumps from a 44-metre high (144-ft) waterpipe bridge in the Siberian Taiga area outside Krasnoyarsk, November 3, 2013. Fans of rope-jumping, a kind of extreme sport involving a jump from a high point using an advanced leverage system combining mountaineering and rope safety equipment, marked the end of the group's jumping season and recent Halloween festivities.

Members of the "Exit Point," an amateur rope-jumping group jump from a 44-metre high water-pipe bridge in Russia. Fans of rope-jumping, a kind of extreme sport involving a jump from a high point using an advanced leverage system combining mountaineering and rope safety equipment, marked the end of the group's jumping season and recent Halloween festivities. The difference between rope-jumping and bungee jumping is that the rope in rope-jumping does not stretch like a bungee cord. (Reuters)
