Valery Rozov needs no introduction. Twice World Champion in sky jumping from 1999 and 2003), European Champion and World Cup winner from 2002, and the current world record holder in sky jumping keeps himself pretty busy. After jumping off the north face of Mount Everest last year and achieving so the world's highest BASE jump ever from 7220 meters (23,688ft) above sea level, this time, the famed Russian extreme athlete has picked on another colossus - Mount Kilimanjaro.
