WATCH: Record Everest BASE Jump
Valery Rozov leaps off North Face
Good luck to anyone who wants to top this. Russian extreme sports star Valery Rozov, 48, recently completed the highest-ever BASE jump from the North Face of Mount Everest.
The over four-mile leap was meant to mark the 60th anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay’s first ascent of Everest. Rozov spent more than two years preparing and developing a special new wingsuit for the jump.
After three weeks acclimatizing at Base Camp and a four-day hike to the jump point, Rozov stepped onto the ledge and—well, the footage speaks for itself.
