There's not a whole lot more that can be said about Kilian Jornet. He is essentially the Michael Jordan of mountaineering and operates on another level than the average human. Jornet has set speed records summiting the likes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Denali, and as of this May, ascended the 29,029-foot peak of Mount Everest in just over 26 hours.
Hold on and watch the 29-year-old Spaniard climb the daunting East Ridge, at Kyrkjetaket, in Romsdalen, Norway. Even with a GoPro POV mount in hand, Jornet swiftly cruises up the ridge, with hundreds of feet in exposure on either side.
