One of the other most impressive accomplishments of 2015 was Ueli Steck’s project to climb all 82 peaks in the Alps that are taller than 4000 meters (13,123 feet). The Swiss Machine managed to knock off all of those mountains in a mere 62 days, showing us once again why he is amongst the most talented alpinists of his generation.
In the video below, you’ll get a chance to watch Ueli go to work in the Alps, while discussing the project, and what drives him to press forward with his expeditions to the mountains.
What will Ueli have in store for us in 2016? We’ll just have to wait to find out. But I’m sure it’ll be something unique and impressive.
