BASE Jumping Antarctica

With the Antarctic season in full swing, we all know there are plenty of adventures underway at the bottom of the world. One of those took place last week when Russian climber and BASE jumper Valery Rozov climbed up the 2931 meter (9616 ft.) Mt. Ulvetanna in -22ºF temperatures, just so he could jump off the top in his wingsuit and glide back to base camp. The video below captures all the fun, which includes some rather technical rock climbing in very cold conditions.
