Anton was a very experienced aerialist.
Anton and another jumper were on exit point 6 in Kjerag Norway.
A third jumper was going to do a solo behind after they landed.
Anton set up on the diving board and good friend behind him for the two way...
the count begins and Anton goes off doing a triple pike into a few front flips. At this stage he is at 7-8 secs still in rotation on a 12 sec to impact rock drop.
He comes out at 9-10 secs still facing the wall, turns at about the 11 second mark (this is when the second jumper starts tracking away and we lose sight in video).
He knows he has to pitch to not impact at 12 second mark, he pitches and gets a 180 turning to right...
No time to turn away impacts hard the first time, the canopy turns around a little but is grabbed by either a branch or the rock ledge and this then smashes him in even harder, this is the blow that killed him instantly.
Had Anton survived the impact, he was still hung up on wall for 7 hours as an alpine team tried to rescue him.
Anton either chose to ignore, or did not think of the consequences of leaving very little separation on a big wall.
