Swedish action in Alaska

Its not often I get psyched by Swedish alpinism but boy this time I'm super psyched. Magnus Kastengrean and Andreas Fransson pulled off a 33 hour accent of the huge Cassin Ridge on Denali and it included a 9h bivy. That's a top notch achievement by any standards. On top of that Fransson managed to ski a huge part of the South Face of Denali a few days before.

The new speed record set the same day by UK Climber Will Sim and John Griffith shaved of about 20 min from Mugs Stumps old record.
