“Flying dagger” daredevil Jeb Corliss–equipped with a wingsuit–flew through a narrow pass in the Langshan Mountain in China.

The jump was captured on camera as Corliss, 37, jumped out of a helicopter and bolted through the rock mountain, located in Zhejiang Province.

“Yesterday I covered 3 football fields in 5 seconds and at about half way the walls were about 25ft wide. I had to side slip as I flew because the crack was crooked and there was turbulence. I had to pull as I exited the crack in full flight or I would not make it to the only landing area that was behind me. Once I committed to the landing area there were no outs,” he wrote on his Facebook page after the stunt.

He added that it was “the greatest thing I’ve ever done up to this point. I am just so, so happy that we were able to do it,” according to the U.K.’s Mirror paper.

“I was really worried that it wasn’t going to happen. I was sure it wasn’t going to happen. I’ve no idea. I just didn’t want to disappoint everyone,” he added.
