Alps 4000: 75 Peaks in 52 Days
Many climbers dedicate a lifetime to the conquest of the Alpine peaks over 4000 metres high, but Martin Moran and Simon Jenkins set out to climb all 75 of them in one continuous journey. Furthermore, they shunned motorized transport, and instead used bicycles to travel from one starting point to the next. Faced with blizzards, white-outs and thunderstorms, and fighting hunger, exhaustion and near-despair, the two men succeeded in their attempt, covering more than 1000km, including 70,000 metres of ascent, in just 52 days.
