Man Pushes Brussel Sprout Up a Mountain with His Nose

49-year-old Englishman Stuart Kettell is without a doubt the first man ever to successfully push Brussels sprout up a 1,085-meter mountain, using his nose. This weekend, Stuart managed to climb Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales – on all fours, while pushing a Brussels sprout with his nose. You might think he’s crazy, but he actually took on the bizarre challenge to raise money for charity.

“On the 30th of July, I’m going to be pushing a brussels sprout up Mount Snowdon with my nose,” Stuart announced on his blog. “A trial run at Snowden – 0.1 mile took me 50 minutes. And that was while really driving the sprout hard, pushing it along with my nose. So I’ve calculated that it’s actually going to take me four to five days to complete the challenge. Very rough terrain up there, it’s all slate and rocks and steps.”

On the scheduled date, Kettell began his ascent of the 1,085-m mountain on the morning in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Considering the crazy difficulty of the challenge, there were few people who actually thought he could pull it off, but Stuart himself had faith in his abilities. After all, the professional fundraiser had put himself through several other bizarre fundraising challenges before.
