Valery Rozov and his crew first had to climb to the top of shiving, a 21-thousand foot high mountain in the Himalayas.

The expedition took 30 days, including six days to ascend the mountain.

Rozov is a World Champion in skydiving, but this was his first effort in the Himalayas.

Once on the cliff, Rozov took off from the top of the mountain and within seconds hit speeds of 124 miles-per-hour.

He landed just 90 seconds later almost a mile down the glacier.

It took other members of the team 3 days to descend from the mountain.
