A Russian daredevil who fearlessly leaped off the world’s highest peaks and swirled through the winds on top of the world died during a base-jumping accident in the Himalayas over the weekend.
Valery Rozov’s death was announced by his sponsor Red Bull.
The acclaimed and legendary base jumper was killed in eastern Nepal during an expedition on the 22,349 foot-high Mount Ama Dablam, located in the Himalayas, the company said.
Mingma Gelu Sherpa — who works with Seven Summits Club, the group that organized the expedition — said the accident happened Saturday.
The rescue was very difficult as it was inside a crevasse, Gelu said. He said many Sherpas trekked to the spot to recover his body since helicopters cannot land in the area.
Not good when only Sherpas can find whats left.
Anytime someone dies that has balls this big it’s a huge loss for the world. I think I’ve wasted at least 14 days collectively watching Rozov’s YouTube Video’s when I get high. The angles, ow to film and get the average pussy like me to experience something so few can do is all him. He pioneered “go-pro” type filming in the first person base jumping and owns almost every record of note in the sport including the highest, Mt Everest.
Enjoy the gift this insane bastard left behind and tweek up a little before you watch it.
