Base Jump World Record!

The world record for high­est base jump in a wing­suit now belongs to some crazy Russ­ian guy named Valery Rozov. After a month-long expe­di­tion and a six-day climb, he jumped from the top of a 21,467-foot moun­tain in the Himalayas.

He glided for about 90 sec­onds and landed on a glac­ier 7,200 feet below his take-off spot. It hap­pened a week-and-a-half ago, but the video was uploaded to YouTube yesterday.

Like I said, it took him 90 sec­onds, but the two guys who climbed up with him had to hike back down … and it took three days to make the same trip.
