Unicycling Mount Damavand

We can’t quite relate to the desire to ride a unicycle, but we can definitely relate to Lutz Eichholz’s desire to push his limits, which he ultimately does by successfully unicycling Mount Damavand.

After three years of planning and over 10 years of extreme unicycling Lutz Eichholz succeeds in the unicycle descent of the 5671m high Mt. Damavand in Iran. Despite the altitude, injuries and weather fluctuations between 40° and -7° celsius, Lutz Eichholz succeded in the record-breaking mountain descent. Never before has a unicyclist attempted to descend such a high mountain. “At some points I felt so bad that I thought I would have to give up,” said Eichholz. “However, this project is so important to me that I managed to push my limits further than expected“.
