This Might Be The Most Out There Climber We've Ever Seen

The real life Spiderman.

We've seen some crazy climbers in our time.


There is Alex Hannold, who has made his name by free soloing some of the most treacherous mountains on Earth, such as Yosemite's Half Dome, El Capitan and Mount Watkins all in one day.

Another one of his feats was reaching the 2500 ft summit of El Sendero Luminoso (The Shining Path) in three hours. This is considered perhaps, the hardest free solo climb in history.

Another famous climber, was Dean Potter.

He recently passed away during a BASE jumping accident in Yosemite. In a Facebook post, Hannold said this NY Times article best describes the events occurred on that day.

Here's a video of Potter enjoying what he loved most, BASE jumping with his pet dog Whisper.

However, as dangerous as free solo climbing and BASE jumping are, we haven't ever seen a man like the one you are about to see.

Here's just one of his outrageous moves. What?

When he can't reach a ledge by leaping to it, he simply decides to do a backflip and get to it that way.

We have never seen anything like this before in our lifetime. Perhaps it exists somewhere, but we don't know where.

This isn't an unknown climber though. He goes by the name of Jyoti Raju and he's from India.

His technique is what really sets him apart from other climbers. 

Whereas, most climbers feel out the lay of the mountain and spend a day to acclimate for one long climb, Raju is all about just seeing it and doing it.

Just look at this!

It really is beyond incredible. You can really get a feel for how fast Raju is climbing when the camera switches to the GoPro view in the video below.

These are just minor accomplishments though. In a Telegraph piece he did, Raju says his dream is to scale the Burj Khalifa.

That we will most definitely be watching if it ever happens. Until then...

Here's his climb from a view on the ground.

RIP Dean Potter
