An oldie but a goodie. Ueli Steck, aka “The Swiss Machine” has been at the summit of mountaineering for years, and this is one of his most impressive feats. Steck broke the record for the quickest ascent of the north face of Grandes Jorasses in Chamonix in 2008. Beautiful scenery, incredible photography and one hell of a climb—one you certainly won’t want to miss. -Mitch One Response Jon Maiden January 2, 2013 Ueli Steck is my climbing inspiration! Whenever I think it’s tough going ascending a mountain, I think of Ueli running up it without stopping for breath! Whenever my vertigo begins to bit, I think of Ueli climbing sheer walls of rock without ropes! The man is a mountain machine.
