And as these stunning pictures show, because the climbs can last for weeks they must set up tents on the edge of monster-sized cliff faces for much needed rest.
The incredible pictures were taken by adventure photographer Gordon Wiltsie, 57, who risks his own life to capture these unbelievable thrill-seeking moments.
He said: During this climb it was the Arctic spring so melting snow on both the summit and a ledge midway up the cliff constantly sent rocks and chunks of ice flying down.SEE CATERS COPY, Model Release: No or not aplicable, Credit line:, Caters News
