Base jumper Valery Rozov spent a month in the Indian Himalaya preparing for a climb up the 6543 meter (21,466 ft) Mt. Shivling. It took him six days to complete the ascent, but just 90 seconds to return to the base. While at the summit, Rozov stepped out of his climbing gear, donned his wingsuit and took flight. A minute and a half later he was on the ground, but his climbing partners would require another three days to get back down.
Rozov, who is well known for his dramatic and daring Base Jumps, set a new world’s record for the highest altitude jump on this expedition.
