You're looking at alpinist Gaston Rebuffat standing proud on the Aiguille de Roc, a striking needle rock in the Alps, near Chamonix, France. It's an outstanding image - one that aliens from another solar system or galaxy may see one day.

Impressive, right? And this was in the 1950s, when alpinists didn't have any advanced gear. Not even Gore-Tex.
