This is very cool. From The Guardian:
A Nepalese former British army soldier has climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000-metre-high mountains in a record-breaking 189 days…
The previous record? Seven years, 11 months, and 14 days.
The last guy did it for fun, and took his time. Perhaps he wasn’t trying to set a time-based record so much as simply accomplish the thing. This guy decided to do it as fast as humanely possible.
