Jump and Don’t Freeze



Penguins don’t fly. Someone in Antarctica might as well fly for them.

Earlier this week, The Adventure Blog featured this video of a 2009 first jump from a 1,000 meter rock on the most extreme of Earth’s 7 continents.

BASE jumpers Sebastien Collomb-Gros, Sam Beaugey, Manu Pellissier and Geraldine Fasnacht fought off temperatures in the negative 30s to climb Holtanna and Holstinnd and then jump off — a truly impressive feat. 

A year later, this Antarctic adventure may have been trumped. In 2010, Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov climbed 9,616-foot Mount Ulvetanna and wingsuited to basecamp.

At this rate, it’s only a matter of time before someone climbs up and jumps off 16,050-foot Vinson Massif, the tallest mountain in Antarctica.

Will that someone be you?
