A member of the "Exit Point" amateur rope-jumping group takes a rope jump in Khakassia region
Yuriy Yuferov, 31, a member of the "Exit Point" amateur rope-jumping group dressed in a fancy dress costume of a pirate and Father Frost (the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus) reacts after taking a rope jump from a 120-metre (394 feet) high rock down to a man-made crater called "Tuimsky Proval" (Tuimsky cavity), outside the town of Tuim in Khakassia region, October 19, 2013. The cavity was formed at the site of wolframium, molybdenum and copper underground mines due to numerous explosive works in the middle of the 20th century which influenced the fall of the hilltop. Fans of rope-jumping, a kind of extreme sport involving a jump from a high point using an advanced system of amortization including mountaineering and rope safety equipment, arrive at Tuimsky Proval for about a 5-second-long free flight with speeds of up to 180 km (93 miles) per hour.

Andreou has been performing stunts since he was 17 and in 2006 set up the Wall of Death, a narrow wooden barrel 5.5 metres high and 9 meters wide. Andreou, one of the few remaining performers of such motorcycle stunts in Greece and one of only two owners of these barrels, does other odd jobs to earn a living during winter, when the Wall is closed due to weather conditions.
