If these traverses were in the Alps the question would be who will be the first to solo the traverses in winter in less than 2 days. Those guys are crazy. An entirely different league. http://www.examiner.com/article/kilian-jornet-sets-speed-record-on-courmayeur-chamonix-crossing
Jornet who was solo in his attempt traveled from Courmayeur, Italy to the summit of Mont Blanc via the technical Innominata Ridge and back down the opposite side to Chamonix, France, 42 kilometers distance, in 8:42:57.
Jornet left Courmayeur 3:53 am from the church square (elevation of 1000 meters) and headed out across the Val Veny towards the Monzino Refuge. The next section of the route included crossing glacier en route to the Bivac de les Eccles (4041m).
After crossing the glacier, Jornet carefully navigated a tricky rappel and a difficult section of climbing along the Innominata Ridge which included climbing sections of V+ difficulty and 60 degree slopes. He crested the ridge and ended up breaking trail across the final snowfield reaching the roof of Western Europe in 6 hours and 17 minutes.
After a short five minute respite on the Mont Blanc summit (4810m), Jornet descended down to Chamonix (995m) in just 2 hours and 19 minutes.
"This is a record time, considering that normal expeditions which tackle this route take 3 days to do it."
