In just 7 minutes and 22 seconds, a New York City man won Scale the Strat -- the same time he had when he won last year.

44-year-old Sproule Love climbed all 1,455 steps of the Stratosphere Sunday. More than 650 people went up all 108 floors in a race to the top.

"It's become one of the go to races for the U.S. for sure," Love said.

Scale the Strat benefits the American Lung Association of Nevada and while the event was Sunday, fundraising continues for another month with the hopes of raising $215,000.
