What?!!! It takes me at least 2:18 to get my stuff to the base. That leaves me with one minute to get to the top....damn...

Congrats!

The speed climbing record for the Nose has changed hands several times in the past few years. The record currently belongs to Alex Honnold and Hans Florine, who broke the previous record by almost 13 minutes, with a time of 2:23:46 (2 hours, 23 minutes, 46 seconds) on June 17, 2012. - Wikipedia

Funny Wikipedia spelled out the time in case people interpret it as days?

I'll be impressed when climbers can climb 3,000 feet faster than runners can run 26.2 miles.

Doing it in that time is like Usain Bolt breaking the world record but anything under 5 hours is still very impressive also .....

Anyone have any idea for the fastest ascent by two people who had never been on the Nose before?
I read that Alex and George Lowe did a 9 hour ascent.

Brad and Jim, did you guys substract 7 seconds from your recorded time? It's in the rule book now, right?

I hit the tree and stopped the watch, subtracting the agreed-upon seven seconds. I pulled out my phone and called down to Jacki, who was in the meadow with the kids.

2:23:46, I told her.
