Altitude leaderboard

To find the highest possible altitudes around the globe and capture it on camera. This is an old tradition of the U-Dispuut that U-BASE has taken over. The specifications for being added to this list of legends are simple: be high, and represent U-BASE (for example by wearing a t-shirt, tie, or doing the trademarked U-salute with your arms). Furthermore, we will require an eyewitness account that you shouted “UUUUU-BASE!” (formerly U-bouw Hoog!) whilst making the picture!
