In 2008 Bill Birbick climbed 'KMA' fifteen times in succession, varying the line from 5.9 to 5.10. He also climbed 'Baby Bear' sixteen times.

In 2011, Max climbed 5.9 'Black Rain' on t.r. in one minute twenty-eight seconds. He has led 5.11 'Herculean Test' in less than four minutes.

Jeremy Rhee climbed 5.13 'Black and Blue Velvet' on lead, down-climbed, then up again, down again, up again and down, without touching ground between.

Alex climbed 'Chicken Bone Left' on t.r. fifteen times in succession, faster each time, stopping mostly to let others on it.

A father and son, Steve and Seth, were practicing 'Black Rain' on mock lead, and got it down to six minutes.

Daniel, who is training for El Capitan as solo lead, did solo top-rope with his Silent Partner on 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrel' fifteen times with only a few rests.

A fellow did a boulder-type traverse from the arete at 'Goldilocks', past the Bears, around and across 'Any Major Dude', around and across the face at 'Every Major Dudette' before coming off.

Considering that Jeremy also climbed to the top of a 5.14 at the RRG and then down climbed it and cleaned it without stopping once, I'd say the Pilot Mountain gig was kind of a rest day for him.
