Video: Face to Face with Ueli Steck

As I write this, Swiss climber Ueli Steck is on his way to Nepal to attempt the very difficult ascent of Nuptse along the Babanov route. In this video, you get to know Ueli a bit more and learn about his philosophy of going solo, as well as a light and fast, in the mountains. He won’t be taking on Nuptse by himself, he’ll be joined by American Colin Haley, but that climb will require considerable patience and skill. Ueli gained those skills as a young man climbing the Swiss Alps, and today he is amongst the best alpinists in the world. Find out why thanks to this clip from our friends at Suunto.
