Report

Jornet attempted the record as part of his Summits of my Life project. Salomon has produced some slick videos of Jornet's exploits, including this and this, which include interviews with Brunod and neat archival footage of his 1995 run. Ian Corless has an excellent interview with Jornet done shortly after his successful record run, which also includes more information on the mountain and routes, Brunod, and the record.  Because the ascent was done using fixed ropes we consider it supported.
