    Pretty awesome stuff.

    To put it in context; it took them 14minutes to climb to sickle ledge which is 4 tricky and long picthes – around 500ft of total climbing. That is AMAZING ! It takes most people half a day to get to sickle ledge……

    Yes. It took me and Jon 5 days to do the Nose, which is the average time for first timers. Just how the hell people climb 32 pitches in 3 hours(6min/pitch) is beyond my understanding.

    I mean most runners can run 100m in 14sec and world record is 9sec. But if we translated the climbing gap into running it would be like a 100m world record of 1 second! Incredible. The gap between peak and average climbing is probably larger than in any other sport on earth.
