Can't base jump off anything non-vertical, and even where there is a cliff or something similar, there's a good chance of a gust of wind slamming you into the cliff face and down to the valley below.

I've paraglided off of certain mountains, which is basically like launching a hang glider, except with a parachute and special harness. Having said that, you can only do it off certain slopes, in certain weather conditions, hope for thermals, etc.

Like my photography? Buy some here....
