Geographical records of the Earth are well known: the highest mountain is Mount Everest, the longest river is Nil, the highest waterfall is Angel Falls. However, the Czech geodesists stated in 2019 that Tugela Falls in the South Africa is higher. Nobody made a traverse or abseil this waterfall until now. Team of friends have decided to abseil and measure it. The first abseil was successful, but the difficult task was still ahead - to abseil the Angel Falls in Venezuela and to compare them.
