It may look like it has been through some serious digital altering to show the progress of one climber trekking across a mountain top, known as time-lapse photography, but in fact this shot has not been tampered with at all.
This incredible snap show not one, but 28 climbers posing in perfect symmetry as they scale a near-vertical mountain in the Italian Alps.
It was taken on the ‘Ago del Torrone’ (a shard of rock known as Cleopatra’s Needle, 3,000ft above sea level on the border between Switzerland and Italy) perched 3,000ft above sea level, and took five hours of climbing and preparation in freezing temperature.
