    This section is a showcase of 'Noteworthy Reports' from 28DL.

    All the reports you see here are notable for one or more of the following reasons at least...

    A good first explore.
    This might be either on 28DL or in the community as a whole. We don't make these up, they really happened to the best of our knowledge. We're always happy to correct the record though.

    An 'epic' explore.
    Maybe not a first, but noteworthy in that normal boundaries were pushed to the max.

    An outstanding report.
    Maybe not first or even 'epic', but the best report of a location, that accurately portrays the location with high quality pictures and a detailed narrative.

    ---------------

    Please suggest reports to be included below. It's perfectly acceptable to suggest your own.

    This thread is fantastic - I'm seeing threads I have never seen before, and I have been here for 6 months :thumb

    Regarding this...
    Is there any link still around for the newspaper article? And where can I buy one of these climbing helmets that saves you from a 50+ metre fall? I would like one!

    Would like to nominate Downfallen's Burj Dubai jump, just can't find it on here. Found a very nice video
    " In the memory of Downfallen " a collage of his explores. Search " In the memory of Downfallen " on Google & you'll find it. If anything, post that, since a whole lot of his doings I'd certainly classify as EPIC !

    RIP Downfallen

    I think by the time we've rinsed the collective memory there's going to be quite a lot actually.

    Glad you like it.

    Downfallen posted some ridiculous escape and evasion, and ultimately capture, courts, jail and a paperwork fuck up that allowed him to escape Dubai...
