That's just sick... Potter is amazing.

Outside magazine had a nice article (http://outside.away.com/outside/features/200212/200212/climbing_the_speed_1.html) on him a few years back:

The single piece aiding is sketchy, especially fast. Certainly an impressive accomplishment. I like the "surprised" guy at 1 minute.

So for the non climbers here what does that mean? I'm assuming that's a good time to do that climb in?

It's phenomenal... I have never climbed out at Yosemite, but from what I understand, the average climber might take a couple of days to summit The Nose.
