Valery Rozov becomes the first man ever to climb Antarctica’s 9,616-foot-high Mount Ulvetanna and BASE jump off.
After two weeks of preparation, Rozov climbed the face of the Ulvetanna together with his climbing colleague, Alexander Ruchkin, and mountain photographer, Thomas Senf. With his wingsuit on, he then flew for 45 seconds down the face of the mountain before opening his parachute and landing safely.
“It was like a journey to another planet,” he said. “It’s deeply satisfying and has given me a long and lasting feeling of happiness.”
