There has been a lot written about Swiss climber Ueli Steck this week, and one thing is certain, the mountaineering world will miss him. While we all mourn his loss in a variety of ways, I choose to honor his memory with this video that was shot while he climbed the Eiger in the Alps.
It perfectly encapsulates what Ueli brought to mountaineering – going fast and light, with athleticism this was practically unmatched by anyone else in the mountains. He was certainly one of a kind, the likes of which we may not see again for awhile. RIP Swiss Machine.
