    Burt How high up was Burt's fall?

    I myself have no idea, it was less then 14, they said it was a steep line. So they went down I would guess more then 4 floors but does anyone know how many?

    Heres my math from the chapter 24 discussion thread

    The zipline went from the roof (~15th floor) to the adjacent roof. Then it went back down to the 3rd floor. Assuming the same angle slope on the 2 zipwires, the adjacent tower is probably about 9 stories tall. Burt was close but probably just a bit higher than the roof of the other tower. This means that Burt probably fell around 10 floors. Not to mention that the burning tanker was beneath him. I'm not sure that he would have necessarily hit that, but its an extra reason why he might not have made it.

    Looking at the cover art from the show the building he zipped to was six stories high. So about 60 feet?

    Good idea, but I believe you are incorrect. The RPG team was on the other side of the tower to the nearby tower where the helicopter was landed. From memory, I believe that the RPG team was north, and the building with Kelly and Tanya in was the south side.

    How far out was he when the rope let go?
    maybe he was able to swing toward a window or grab hold of a ledge on the way down.

    I've only listened to the episode once, will have to listen again me thinks.

    We don't necessarily know how far away he was. The rope break happened 10 yards away from the Adjacent Tower rooftop, but that doesn't mean he was at that point. 10 yards is pretty close considering the distance he traveled to get from one tower to the next and Michael said he was close...hmm.
