Last week, Russian mountaineer and BASE Jumper Valery Rozov climbed up Mont Blanc, perhaps the most famous peak in Europe, and jumped off the Italian side of the mountain. According to Red Bull, the sponsor for the event, he then proceeded to make an 800 meters (2625 ft) free fall in his wingsuit, before opening his chute and drifting gently to the ground.
Watching the video of the jump below, it’s clear that he didn’t go to the summit, but he did climb a big wall on the mountain, where he finds a small ledge to leap from. Still, watching Rozov zip through the air is an impressive sight, and of course, the Alps always look nice too!
