When Valery Rozov took a flying leap from the top of the world, he leapt into the record books with the highest-altitude BASE jump ever recorded at 7,220m, landing on the Rongbuk glacier at 5,950m.
The flight – in which Rozov wore a specially designed suit to accomodate the thin air – was supported by an ascent team, and took place in temperatures 18 degrees below zero. After the exit, Rozov flew for nearly a minute, reaching 200kph before throwing his chute and coming down for a landing.
