RIP Ueli Steck

One of the greatest mountaineers in the world, dead at 41 after an accident at Camp II on Everest :cry:

For an idea of how good he was, this video is of him speed-soloing the Grandes Jorasses in the Alps in just under 2.5 hours. It would normally take a pair of skilled climbers two days to do:


Very sad. His videos are absolutely amazing. :cry:

Blimey,didn’t see that coming, RIP :frowning:

As the old adage goes, there’s no old, bold climbers!
