BASE jumper Miles Daisher has managed to travel the height of Mount Everest in less than a day. Using a bridge in Idaho, Miles managed jump the spot 63 times in 24 hours, breaking the previously held record of 61. Each leap involved a landing on the riverbank below and a treacherous climb back up a steep trail. By the end of it Miles’ legs were constantly cramping from overexertion, making it a particularly dangerous task.
This has meant that the record breaking jumper has now traveled a total of 30618 feet just from the return hike, beating the height of Mount Everest by a 1000 feet. It has also lead to an unofficial record for the most BASE jumps ever, with Miles totaling 4520 leaps in his lifetime.
