…again and again, at Robber’s Roost, a popular hideout for Butch Cassidy and company. Amazing video:
Myles of Earl. Via Steph Davis:
“Out in the Utah desert in the Dirty Devil Wash is a secret canyon. Robber’s Roost was one of Butch Cassidy’s cattle rustling hideouts, inaccessible on horseback except by one trail. Remnants of his shelters still remain, along with ancient petroglyphs on the rock walls.
Just above Robber’s Roost, a 600 foot cliff drops straight down to the river bed. Base jumpers can escape by climbing out a narrow slot canyon.
Jumpers, who spend much of our time eluding Park Rangers and unfriendly Native American tribes, can be safe here and jump to our hearts’ content, with no fear of persecution. It’s an outlaws’ paradise.
The jump is named “Myles of Earl” in honor of a jumper and pilot who spotted this cliff from the air while searching for remote walls, and later died in a plane crash over the canyonlands of Utah.”
