The 53-year-old adventurer broke the record for pushing a peanut to the top of Pikes Peak in the shortest time.
Bored with walking up mountain paths the conventional way ? Then how about giving this a go.
Bob Salem from Colorado Springs recently made the history books by becoming the fourth person ever to push a peanut up Pikes Peak using his nose and by doing it in the fastest time.
The peculiar stunt, which saw him don a special contraption designed to make it easier for him to actually move the peanut without repeatedly smashing his face into the ground, achieved the feat mostly at night to avoid the heat and rested during the daytime.
Without anyone else to help him, he found himself having to complete each part of the ascent twice - once to carry his backpack and belongings up, then again to push the peanut up.
Over the course of the climb he used around two dozen peanuts, with most of them ending up pinging off down crevices or being smashed up by the repeated pushing movements.
"I don't feel sore or anything but I know I lost some weight," he said following the trip.
"My muscles are fine, it was just doing the back and forth that really took it out of me."
The first person ever to achieve the feat was Texas craftsman Bill Williams who pushed a peanut to the top of the peak in 1929 in order to win a bet.
