Russian extreme sports star and certified loon Valery Rozov set a new world record yesterday for the highest base jump when he leapt off the north face of Mount Everest, 7220 metres above sea level.

The Russian with the balls of steel had spent two years planning this particular jump, which is to honour the sixtieth anniversary of the first ascent of Everest by Kiwi Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.

Valery and his team took four days of climbing on the famous tallest mountain in the world until they got to their jump spot.

Check out the head cam footage below taken of Valery’s jump.
