Its big, beautiful, and bad-ass. 'Blow' is one of the biggest base jumps in New Zealand... a 1,700 metre descent.
The jump starts from a 160 metre high cliff, which leads to a steep talus and 3 kilometres of grassy slopes, waterfalls, and an easy landing. Its a classic.
We made the first jump on 9 January 2014. The weather was not perfect, and Rudy and I had to wait 2 hours for a snow storm on top to pass, WTF! We walked/climbed through fresh snow but there was no ice and we didn't have too much difficulties getting to the exit. Because of the delay, we jumped in strongly thermic conditions.
Jump safely friends... the start is positive and short. And the wind can blow!
Thanks to Paul van Rensburg for scoping the exit with me last year.
