Not sure i see the similarities to 17 days strapped to Cerro Kishtwar though!
holy shit, that's a good tick! Exciting ; )
John and Mark were very discreet, doing phenomenal things and not telling a soul, so it wouldn't surprise me if locals had never heard about it, let alone repeated it!

Definitely not the same speed (some days on CK we just did 1 pitch).
And not the same level of suffering. I've grown out of that ;-)
Then next day, the greek zulu boy sent it free as well.
