Legendary  free climber, line walker and "human-body-flyer" Dean Potter died  this past weekend while doing a wingsuit base jump at Taft Point in Yosemite  National Park.                    

For Potter, there was a spirituality to his extreme sport. "These  mountain arts bring me peace, and I play in the void and come closer to  understanding interdependence. Death consequence reduces lesser motivations  to the necessity, breath."              

Potter had been a part time resident of Moab, Utah, and made headlines with  a controversial climb of Delicate Arch back in 2006.               

In this short film, part of a National Geographic project called "The  Man Who Can Fly," director Mikey Schaefer sets up a camera as the moon  rises at Cathedral Peak in Yosemite and asks Potter to walk a highline.
