Have you heard about Ueli Steck's next move?

The swissman already broke several record of speed for numerous of the world highest peaks.

The next move is bold... check it out!

Have you heard about Ueli Steck's next move?

Everest - Lhotse


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).
Just follow the red line.




True to himself, Ueli Steck will do it in solo, without oxygene supply 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 settled). He left a few days ago to start this amazing route. History will tell us soon enough if he made it or not...

March 2017 - Ueli Steck trail running on a sunny spring day high above Lake Brienz (Brienzersee) and Interlaken, with views out to the famous mountains of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, Switzerland



Ueli talks about the challenge.
