Mountains, spectacularly stark places, have always called humankind to a challenge since ancestral times. Together with the sea, and in some ways mirroring it, the mountain embodies the longing for human transcendence, an inexhaustible source of sporting dares that often start from a deeper metaphysical and existential dimension.
Mountain challenges are (almost) never just sports, just as altitude records are not just any records. Those who love mountains, or those who have once experienced the thrill of climbing to one of their highest summits, know the fervor they are possessed by. A fervor that takes also those who climb steep mountain cliffs, clinging to the bare rock, and those who go in search of immaculate snow sloped to be marked with skis.
Here are some of the most incredible Alpine mountain records, including impossible ascents, mesmerizing runs on slopes worthy and vertigos-inducing descents. In this article, we are going to talk about 5 of the most spectacular records achieved on top of a mountain:
- Mountain records: the first descent of K2 on skis
- Mountain records: the most spectacular free solo
- Mountain records: the world's highest mountain bike race
- Mountain records: the highest base jump ever
- Mountain records: Ski jumping
