This Man Climbed a Mountain in Under 5 Hours


[via gawker.com] In 1938, the first man to ever climb Eiger—a 13,025 foot mountain in
the Swiss Alps—did so after three days.

So when Ueli Steck managed to
scale the same peak in under three hours (2 hours, 47 minutes and 33
seconds, to be exact), people were flabbergasted.

Click on the video below to watch Steck's feat, and we promise you'll be flabbergasted, too. [via kottke.org]
