At some stage you have to get back to the ground and roll in the rope, but till then you are pulling and sliding up and down putting you in motion. With three of these you can also control the desired direction.

       I'm a bit lost. Are you jumping rope while dangling from a big balloon? Maybe a picture?

       I would like to bun this, but you haven't really explained how it's dangerous.

       //how it's dangerous//   

       Propane burners to heat the air in the balloons might add some danger.   

       But I'm puzzled by //Jumps up by pulling//. If I tried to gain personal altitude by pulling on a rope, I would call that "climbing up the rope". Is that what is proposed?

       If you mean bungee jumping from hot air balloons, this is well baked…

       Is the rope jumping over a personal balloon? Is the balloon a personal jumping rope? So many questions...

       Never seen a rope jump. This is exciting!

       //At some stage you have to get back to the ground and roll in the rope// and presumably deflate and pack up the balloon.   

       Will a hanging weight oscillating up and down with multiple path motions control a balloon's position? Probably only if the paths deflect or control the air around the jiggling balloon more than the current environmental pressure gradients.

       You'll never get anywhere [perinax] with that altitude.

       It got me to the seventeenth floor*.   

       Which is great, except during fire drills.   

       *US: eighteenth floor
