Video: Ueli Steck Talks Solo Annapurna Summit

For my money, Ueli Steck’s solo summit of Annapurna earlier this fall is the most audacious climb of the year. The 28-hour round trip journey could probably only be completed by a handful of mountaineers at best. In the video below, Ueli is interviewed by Hervé Barmasse about the climb, where his motivations come from , how he prepares for such an expedition and more. As always, “the Swiss Machine” is as interesting and engaging as ever.
