Interview on Red Bull site

I Knew I Would Live, Says Valery Rozov

By Josh Sampiero on 5 June 2013 in Features

Back from his epic jump off Everest, we catch up with the legendary Russian for the inside story.

Valery Rozov may have not jumped from the edge of space like Felix Baumgartner – but his BASE jump from Mt Everest was every bit as epic. Baumgartner also didn't have to worry about crashing into rocks straight after jumping...

When I landed, I was so tired. I felt sick. I didn't even really realize what had happened or what I did until we got back to base camp and began to relax. Then it started to sink in.

The hardest part is having to decide. Jump or don't jump. Is the air jumpable? Is it safe? The decision is definitely the hardest part.

I trained really hard. You have to get there and still be in shape to jump. It's a lot of physical work. I did a lot of technical work, too — because of the short drop and thin air — it's a very technical jump. It's so short, you really need to catch speed quickly.

 

We made a new suit. I wanted to have the flattest jump possible in such thin air. It's so short, and your body needs to catch the air and the speed. So we took the high-end model suit that I usually wear, and made modifications that would help with that. It took three or four seconds to get to the speed I needed to fly. That's when I knew I would live.

I look for spots like this. That's more of the challenge than the biggest mountain — finding the next new spot. Since my childhood I was a climber. Climbing is still my passion. I'm always interested to do something new.

The main summit of Everest is quite flat and therefore not possible to jump from. You'd need to build a ramp or something. We made the jump from the North Peak of Everest. I'm sure I set a new level for BASE jumpers.

I definitely used oxygen. It wasn't a climbing expedition. We used oxygen for a short time before the jump. I wanted to make a good decision about the safety – and more importantly, we needed to hurry to take advantage of weather, and acclimatization wasn't finished.

Climbers don't like wind. Wind is also not good for me. I don't like wind at all!

It's always very good to see your family and kids. That's the best part about coming home. And as for what's next? Summer in the Alps. And I've got a few ideas for next year, too.

While a majority of members of the Global heroic expedition of the 7 Summits Club was quick to return home , a tireless Vitaly Simonovic continued to perform feats . After climbing to the top of Carstensz Pyramid, he stayed on the "green" continent and climbed the highest peak in mainland Australia, Mount Kosciuszko.

Thus, Vitaly has successfully completed the 7 Summits in two versions : with Carstens Pyramid and Kosciuszko. Interestingly, that he began his march over tops of the world relatively recently - in 2011, with Kilimanjaro. And such a quick result - 7 Summits, for a little more than 2 years .

By the way, Vitali is also close to the completion of Project 7 Volcanoes, it remained only to climb to the two volcanoes: Orizaba and Ojos. Both ascents are scheduled for the next three six months.

So, there is a chance that Vitaly Simonovich will be the fastest man in the world who have completed two programs at once : 7 Summits 7 and Volcanoes. And he can also add the Poles !

 

 

 

 

And once again we congratulate our members of the Global Expedition Elena Gorelik and Mikhail Turowski , who also successfully completed the 7 Summits program on Version 7 + 1.
