The past few weeks I’ve posted quite a bit about the Altitude Everest Team and throwback style climb. It was the first big, high altitude summit for Leo Houlding, who is more of a rock climber than a mountaineer. In fact, he’s one of the greatest climbers in the World, and you can watch him go to work in these two videos from YouTube.
In the first video, Leo races an Audi RS4 up a mountain as part of the televisionshow Top Gear. In the second video, he races it back down. If you’re not interested in dropping $65k on the Audi, you can fast forward to the 4:25 mark of the video to get to the climbing. Both of the videos are a lot of fun and I think you’ll enjoy them.
Thanks to the Anonymous poster in the comments section that passed these along. Great stuff. 🙂
