L'alpiniste russe de 48 ans, Valery Rozov a réalisé le premier saut en base jump depuis l’Everest. Il remporte ainsi le record du monde du plus haut saut en wingsuit depuis une hauteur de 7220 mètres. L'ascension aura duré 4 jours avant de grimpé tout en haut du Mont Everest. Lors de son vol, Valery Rozov est resté un peu moins d'une minute dans les airs à près de 200 km/h. Décidément Red Bull enchaîne les records du monde, on se rappelle tous du saut en parachute depuis l’espace par Felix Baumgartner.
Sixty years after the first successful ascent of Everest a Russian, Valery Rozov, creates another first there. The 48-year-old jumps off the north face, recording the world's highest ever base jump – from 7,220 metres above sea level. It took Rozov four days to climb to the jumping off point
Nearly 60 years to the day after the first ascent up Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov (48) flew off the north face of Mount Everest --the world's highest BASE jump ever - 7220 meters above sea level.
Russian extreme sports star Valery Rozov has performed the world's highest BASE jump - off the north face of Everest - to mark the 60th anniversary of Edmund Hillary's first ascent. Script: Why climb a mountain? "Because it is there" - so goes the famous retort by legendary mountaineer George Mallory. So, why throw yourself off a mountain? It's a question that is seemingly yet to be posed to Russian extreme sports star Valery Rozov - but you would expect him to give a similar response. Rozov marked the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest by Edmund Hillary by hurling himself off the daunting north face in a death-defying BASE jump. The 48 year-old jumped from a height of 7,220-metres (23,687-feet) above sea level. Despite adverse weather conditions with temperatures 18 degrees below zero, Rozov landed successfully - and safely. It's the highest BASE jump ever completed. So, it's understandable that he was at least a little bit nervous. SOUNDBITE: (English) Valery Rozov, Russia: "It was one of the (most) difficult jumps for me because of the high altitude and my personal physical feeling (which was) not the best of course. I was a little bit nervous that the vertical part at the beginning was short for this altitude." He spent more than two years preparing for the big jump, and about a minute to complete it. But the memory will surely last a lifetime.

Nearly 60 years to the day after the first ascent up Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov (48) flew off the north face of Mount Everest - the world's highest BASE jump ever - 7220 meters (23,688ft) above sea level. The ascent began on the Chinese side on the famous north route. It took him four days to climb from the base camp to the jumping location. At precisely 2:30 p.m. local time he leaped despite adverse weather conditions with temperatures -18 Celsius. Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moments of the leap in the rarified high altitude air were the most critical phase. Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier - at an altitude of 5,950 meters.

Valery Rozov may have not jumped from the edge of space like Felix Baumgartner – but his BASE jump from Mount Everest was every bit as epic. Baumgartner also didn't have to worry about crashing into rocks straight after jumping...
