Thanks to these thrill seekers the highest point to jump from Mount Snowdon has now been discovered.

Taking part in the risky activity of base jumping – parachuting from the high fixed structure, Dave Gallagher, 46, managed to capture Josh Jacobs, 29, jumping from the new highest point.

Dave, a photographer, said: “My images show Josh free-falling briefly then his canopy deploys, leading him to then soar back and forth alongside the cliffs before gliding down to land by the lake several hundred metres below.

“There’s definitely a feeling of wild excitement, with satisfaction that another first has been accomplished, and relief that he is down safely.”
