A studio interview with Jon talking to Montane about his motivations, inspirations and what is next…
A world 1st!! 3 Summits in 7 days (all from base camp), the 3rd of which was a speed ascent/descent in 14 hours and 10 min (Basecamp – Summit – Basecamp). Which is the 2nd fastest recorded time!
With a few days between expeditions and good weather forecast Jon decided to take last lift up on the mountain and head for the summit the following morning. He filmed little sections along the way – all done on his iPhone! Skiing off the summit is always fun – and on this day it was perfect!
