Mike Foote, an athlete for the North Face, recently broke the single day record for human-powered vertical at his home ski area of Whitefish in northern Montana. Foote started the grueling test at 9:20am on Saturday and finished at approximately 8:50am the following day. His final tally– 61,200′. Everest stands at a 29,029′ above sea level.

Day & night, Foote was assisted by numerous support staff who kept fresh skins, snacks, and other necessities at the ready. The Montana resident is actually known for his trail running accolades which include top finishes the Hardrock 100 and UTMB.

Congrats on this amazing accomplishment!

And the evidence!
