Ueli Steck Heads Everest
The picture above speaks for itself.
The idea might seems crazy, but when you know the man, you know it's calculated. The "Swiss machine" wants to climb Mount Everest and right after climb Lhotse (the 4th highest summit of the world).
See proposed route below
True to himself, Ueli Steck will do it in solo, without oxygen and in the most purest alpine style (meaning he will use the gear he carries on himself and not the fixed ropes, the ladders or other things already on the mountain). He left a few days ago to start this amazing route. History will tell us soon enough if he can pull it off
