During WWII, Felice Benuzzi with two fellow Italian prisoners of war escaped from a British prison camp  to climb Mt Kenya’s Point Lenana, then sneaked back into camp after they successfully summit. Working in secret for close to eight months, they stitched together backpacks, fashioned crampons from barbed wire and an old car fender, and cold-forged ice axes out of hammers stolen from the shop. When their feat was uncovered, they were promptly tossed in solitary confinement, but only after the British commandment commended them for their “sporting effort”.
