"Let them try" was Bob "Enzo" Banks' first comment upon completing 290 boulder problems as part of his 29th challenge on June 29th, 2000. This broke the unofficial record by 20, which was established by Steve "Jacques" Edwards in 1997.
Not quite finished, he then set off on a 29-kilometer run before finishing drinking, and collapsing in severe exhaustion, unable to finish the remaining physical parts of his Challenge.
