Most Stairs Ascended While Juggling
Most of us find juggling difficult enough but imagine doing it while climbing the stairs! That's exactly what Spain's Christian Roberto López Rodríguez did, managing to climb a mind-boggling total of 2,082 stairs while simultaneously and continuously juggling with three balls.
Most Stairs Ascended with a Person Balanced on the Head
Pablo Nonato Panduro achieved this bonkers record in October 2018. After his friend Joel Yaicate Saavedra climbed onto Pablo's head and did his best to get comfortable, Pablo successfully ascended 97 stairs, gaining him the coveted place in the record books.
Most Stairs Ascended on the Head
Li Longlong from China secured his title as a record-breaker by climbing 34 stairs while standing precariously on his head. Not content with this, he attempted the feat again: this time, he managed another two stairs, bringing his record-breaking total up to 36. Perhaps not surprisingly, nobody else has yet attempted to better this total.
