​Think Your Fast? Try Climbing 18 4000m Peaks In The Alps in a Day

There’s fast. And then there’s Swiss speed climber fast. Back in 2015, the late Ueli Steck and his partner Andreas Steindl completed a new record of the “Spaghetti Tour” – linking all 18 of the 4000-meter peaks in the Monte Rosa massif. It took them 14 hours and 35 minutes. Last summer, the next generation of climbers put their endurance and climbing skills to the test, beating the standing record by nearly an hour, with a time of 13:39. Nicolas Hojac and Adrian Zurbrügg started the traverse just before midnight, hoping to beat warming temperatures. The duo summited the first ten peaks before dawn, before getting a rope stuck on a descent. They were forced to cut the rope with a pocketknife and continued the rest of the 18-mile and nearly 15,000 vertical foot route. At 1230, they arrived at the top station of the Klein Matterhorn tram station just in time for a much-needed lunch. No wonder it’s called the Spaghetti Tour.

THat’s definitely an overwhelming victory for an athlete. Climbing that fast is both accomplishing and risky at the same time. Still, I’m amazed by the talent this feat took. Thanks for sharing! Septic Replacement

​The Alpinist Chronicles The Singular Life of Marc Andre Leclerc

Every generation of athletes has that one, the dark horse, the wild card, the person who completely transcends what we think is possible. For alpine climbing, that character is Marc-André Leclerc. The young Canadian is known for going so beyond the limits of the sport, climbing alone without a rope on remote alpine faces. He doesn’t own a car or smartphone, and is reluctant to let a film crew follow him through the mountains, yet develops a reputation as one of the all-time best. Leclerc is

Ever wonder what happens when you lose your GoPro in a crash and it flies off your helmet? Well, here’s one possible answer. This past June, a bear found a GoPro seemingly left sitting in the snow (somehow still holding a charge?) and started working those angles. Cute? Terrifying? You decide.

We get lots of video submissions here at TGR, but once in a while there’s one that stands out from the rest. Last year, Solomon Fragakis (then 15) won a GoPro as part of our annual TGR Grom Comp, and an injury this year gave him plenty of time to explore what it means to be behind the camera. Turns out the kid isn’t just a talented snowboarder, but also has some serious filming and editing chops that came together in the form of a short film chronicling the good vibes of surfing, biking, and
