Rozov BASE jumped Cho Oyu

At 7700 metres, beating his previous 2013 record-breaking jump from the Everest Massif at 7220 metres.

Valery Rozov has broken another world-record in BASE jumping in the finale of the #FXTMbasejump project.

The Red Bull athlete, who partnered with FXTM for the feat, performed a successful jump from Mount Cho Oyu in China at 7700 metres. In this astounding accomplishment, Rozov has once again raised the bar of extreme sports higher – beating his previous 2013 record – breaking jump from the Everest Massif at 7220 metres.

The jump from Cho Oyu was completed on 5th of October, following a 21-day expedition to the exit point. The jump took 90 seconds in free fall, then the opening of the parachute and the flight under the canopy lasted approximately 2 minutes before Valery Rozov landed safely on a glacier.

Valery Rozov said: “Jumping from Cho Oyu has been one of my life-long ambitions and being able to achieve this goal as part of the #FXTMbasejump project is a fantastic feeling. The mountain itself is extremely impressive and challenging, but nevertheless having the opportunity to climb it and to BASE jump from there was a great experience.”
