i wouldn't say BASE is a controlled envrionment by any stretch of the imagination (the most controlled you're looking at are the 3000' cliffs in Norway and they still get a couple fatalities) and skydiving maybe about feeling out of control for a first timer/1 off tandem passenger, but after a while that wears off and it's more about learning how to move 3D in freefall (ever dream that you're flying?) At the top levels, skydiving is definitely a sport. It requires a lot of training, balance and fine body control (like climbing) but with out the strength

having said all that, i have to agree with your comment about maintaining control while climbing
