BASE Climbing & Wingsuit Flying – Red Bull From Top to Base
We look back at 2011 when Russian climber and B.A.S.E. jumper Valery Rozov broke another record. For the very first time in history, while wearing a wingsuit, he jumped from the Italian slope of Mont Blanc at over 200 km/h and landed on the Brenva Glacier after an 800-meter flight in freefall.
Il climber e B.A.S.E. jumper Valery Rozov ha infranto un altro record: l’atleta ha indossato la tuta alare e, per la prima volta nella storia, è saltato dal versante italiano del Monte Bianco, superando la velocità di 200 Km/h e atterrando sul ghiacciaio Brenva dopo 800 metri di freefall.
Valery Rozov, a well-known Russian B.A.S.E. jumper and mountaineer has conquered the highest point in Africa (5,895 meters), and made the first ever B.A.S.E. jump from Mount Kilimanjaro, from an altitude of 5,460 meters above sea level. During the jump, Rozov spent more than one minute in freefall and travelled a horizontal distance of more than 3 kilometers. The elevation change between the jump point (5,460 meters) and the point of landing (the Barranco Camp, 3,950 meters) was more than 1,500 meters.
