Two American Boys doing the Best they can, Dean Potter and Sean Leary. My bet is they'll go even faster. . .

That's a darn fast time for an ascent of the Nose by any measure.

Way to go there, nice job!

Nice work, Dean and Stanley. They're just gettin' warmed up, give 'em a few more "tries" and see how they do.

When I think that the vast majority of marathon runners can't cover a flat course in 2:36, I'm left truly humbled. I once stood at the base of Moby Dick Center while a friend thrashed and dangled for over two hours. Finally topping out, he lamented, exhausted: "People can run a marathon in less time!"
