Base-jump and wingsuit athlete Alexander Polli has released a video of his latest stunt: leaping from a helicopter at a wall of rock.

Well, it's not precisely a wall of rock. It's a narrow hole in a wall of rock. It is, somewhat appropriately, called the Batman Cave, located in the Roca Foradada Mountains in Montserrat, Spain.

We're not sure what height Norwegian daredevil Polli leapt from, but as he flew through the air in his wingsuit, he reached a top speed of 250 kilometres per hour — filming as he went on a GoPro camera strapped to his helmet.

As he approaches the wall of rock and bullets through — something that, he claims, has never been done before — it's a few of the most intense seconds we've ever experienced on YouTube.

We don't recommend you try this one for yourself.

Thanks for the tip, Jason!
