“Today I feel … so f**king slow.”
He may have felt that way, but a slow day for Kilian Jornet is still jaw-droppingly fast. In 2017, the Spanish ultra-athlete shocked the alpine climbing world with not one, but two blistering ascents of Mt. Everest.
In May, Jornet rocketed to the 29,029-foot summit in 26 hours – without supplemental oxygen. And if that weren’t enough, the then-29-year-old went up again five days later from a higher altitude in just 17 hours.
In this teaser for his documentary, “Path to Everest,” we see firsthand the humor and humility of Jornet’s incredible expeditions.
