Briefly about the venture

As part of a 7-day project, Gábor Rakonczay was the first to reach the foot of Mont Blanc, running from the beach near Genoa, and then climbed the mountain. The route involved several passes, including the highest paved pass in Europe, the Col de L'Iseran at 2,770 meters. The weather became quite trying, often 35-40 degrees C heat was replaced by hailstorms, until the cold front reached the mountain. After the amazing performance, Gábor said: "...one thing is certain, we have physical limits, but it's also certain that they are infinitely farther than we could imagine in our wildest dreams."
