Ben Hildred

Posted by Andrew Clough on

Ben is a full-time bike mechanic at Vertigo Bikes in Queenstown, NZ who after ‘Everesting’ a few years back, then climbed 55,000 vertical meters in only 30 days while holding down a full-time job. He then climbed the height of Olympus Mons (a volcano on the planet Mars that stands 21,287.4m / 69,841ft above datum, said to be the tallest planetary mountain in the solar system) in three days in November 2020. After a nice month long break, Ben completed his greatest feat yet, he climbed 1 million vertical feet in 200 days (the milly in two-hundy). The only question left is, what can't he do?
