Extreme hiking

Last January, the world’s best mountain runner Kilian Jornet moved to Norway to conquer seven Norwegian summits in one day armed with nothing but skis and chocolate. On Monday, the Catalonian smashed all previous records to become the fastest climber to ascend to the summit of the world’s highest peak without the assistance of oxygen or fixed ropes.

It took 26 hours for Jornet to climb from Everest’s North Base Camp at 5150m above sea level to the summit at 8848m. It takes experienced climbers days to reach the summit, and that is when climbing with oxygen, fixed ropes and guides.
