No, that wasn't Tom Cruise rappelling down the side of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square last Friday (but yes, there is a sixth "Mission Impossible" coming out next July). Instead, it was Stanford men's basketball coach Jerod Haase making his way down 46 stories. 

Haase took part in Outward Bound California's annual City Skyline Challenge, where participants rappel down the side of a skyscraper to benefit scholarship fundraising for underrepresented youths.

Stanford men's basketball's Twitter account posted GoPro footage Tuesday afternoon giving others a chance to see what Haase experienced during his 46-story journey.

Kudos to Haase for not backing away from a challenge, especially one that serves a great cause.
