If you thought this man was "mad", you would not be alone. 

"People definitely think I'm mad, and I'm beginning to think it myself," he said in an interview with the BBC

That's because 49-year-old Stuart Kettell has done the unimaginable. 

The Warwickshire native completed a three-day climb up Snowdon -- while pushing a Brussels sprout with his nose! 

Kettell said he selected a large sprout so that it would not fall down a crevice in the rock.

His aim was to collect at least £5,000 (about $9000 CAD) in sponsorship for Macmillan Cancer Support, but does not yet know how much he has raised. 

Kettell started out on Wednesday and reached the 1,085m summit three days later. 

While he says this was one of his most uncomfortable endeavors yet, it certainly wasn't the strangest. 

Kettal previously raised money by staying in a box for an entire week.
