Aaron Sales of Hood River, Oregon, ascended to the summit of Mount St Helens in just 35 minutes on Friday, April 21, using a kite and snowboard – and he claims he has set a record for the fastest non-motorized ascent of the mountain.

“Nobody had done it before… it was a personal dream to see if I could do it," Sales told <a href="http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/snow-sports/oregon-man-uses-kite-snowboard-to-ascend-mount-st-helens-in-35-minutes/" target="_blank">The Seattle Times</a>. "After a dozen attempts with things going wrong, I was wondering if things would come together.”
