Usually they jump from the Upper Town Wall. But this appears to be the Lower Wall.

Where was the photo taken from?

It is the lower town wall. My partner took it at the first or second belay of Godzilla. Scared the crap out of us!

Sounds like the guy jumped from nearby.

Once I met a BASE jumper at the LTW parking lot. He went up to jump from the Upper Wall, but mentioned that some folks jump over the Orc Wall area (aka, the Quarry). It is even more dangerous there, but perhaps that is where the guy in the photo jumped from.

Yeah, it is a shock when you hear the chute open.
