Why take your time walking up a mountain when you can run? The 29-year-old record of speed climbing the Grand Teton was recently broken. It used to be 3 hours, 6 minutes. It's now 2:54. Here's a video of the two climbers who set the record in 1983. I guess I can understand why they wouldn't stop to smell the roses - there aren't any roses up there.
