Many of us have trouble walking up three flights of stairs. Aaron Aronsson of Stockholm recently became the first person ever to reach the pinnacle of the mountain Kebnekaise with the help of crutches and a wheelchair.

As one might expect, the climb was extremely difficult:

"I am extremely well-trained in my shoulders but I had pain everywhere and was totally wiped out afterwards. But it was an incredible feeling to be the first person in a wheelchair to make it to the top," Aronsson told Metro newspaper.

Kebnekaise, which is 2,106 meters high, is Sweden's highest mountain.
