Absolutely astounding. Honnold's 1st route in Patagonia, at least they took one ice axe, one ice screw and one sleeping bag!!

Almost beyond belief. Truly staggering. A proper use for all that speed training in Yosemite at last!

Staggering... with that amount of gear. They're certainly living close to the edge!
In reply to Chris Craggs:

Just incredible.

Probably a requirement in order to qualify for the Piolet d'Or!

Just a stunning, mind-boggling achievement.

Great stuff!.. They ought to maybe get on the Snowdon Horseshoe, while they're on a roll?

It's just outrageous, anybody even suggesting that in my alpinist years would be considered insane.

It's the little things that aren't explained that get me:
"By this point their rope was reduced to 38 meters in length"

4 nights up there with only one bag. Those are two tough nuts.

Yet they managed to climb the Casarotto Pillar in "two pitches"......
