    Running up real mountains !


    Anyone else come across this before?
    This guy "runs" (well, he certainly isn't hanging around) up mountains and times his ascents.

    Before clicking on the You Tube link, which peaks do you think he will scale?
    Each climb will take him between 1 hour 56 and 2 hr 47 min...

    He didn't seem to be in any great rush to bomb it back down..........

    Wonder if he'll be at Kettlewell on Saturday for Great Whernside?

    I'm sure I saw at the start that he climbs a rope, how can you do this without a seconder? I thought it was supposed to be solo, is there a way of using a rope on you own then?

    it can be done but it very slow so not sure how he does it.

    Basically you end up doing the pitch 3 times

    fix rope climb up. fix rope at top,abseil down, untie rope at bottom prussic/ascender back up.
