Get Up The Mountain Fast

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.

It took us 20 hours round trip. It is unreal to think about someone doing that in three hours! Of course, we stopped for food and used ropes and such.
