Jor­net, 26, made the roundtrip from bot­tom to top, about 50 kilo­me­tres in 11 hours and 40 min­utes. July 2013, Jor­net set the speed record on Mont Blanc when he climbed the peak in four hours and 57 min­utes. Then in Au­gust 2013 he set a new record on the Mat­ter­horn at two hours and 52 min­utes. As part of his Sum­mits of My Life mis­sion, he is climb­ing some of the most fa­mous moun­tains in the world. Next on the list are El­brus, Aconcagua and Ever­est.
