Holtanna Base Jump in the Antarctic

23.04.2012 by Planetmountain

Video of the first BASE jumps from Peaks Holstinnd and Holtanna in the Antarctic.

In 2009 Sam Beaugey, Manu Pellissier, Sébastien Collomb-Gros and Géraldine Fastnacht from France set off to the Holtanna mountain range in Queen Maud Land to make the first BASE jump in the Antarctic. During the two-month trip they endured temperatures down to -40°C to leap off Holstinnd and Holtanna, a thousand metres above the Syginnbryn glacier. The video is out now.
