In May, Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov pulled off one of the most impressive ways to reach the bottom of a mountain while simultaneously breaking a world record. Rozov leaped from the top of the 4 mile high summit of Shivling, a mountain in the Himalayas, wearing specially designed wingsuit and a parachute. After taking 6 days to climb the mountain, he fell at rate of 125 miles/hour, and landed safely after free-falling for 90 seconds. As for the rest of his team, it took them 3 days to descend to the bottom using the old fashioned method---walking.
This is not the first time that Rozov has attempted such a daring base-jump. He once flew directly into an active volcano in 2009 in Kamtschatka, and he jumped from Ulvetanna Peak in Antarctica in 2010.
