Guys Climbs Incredibly Dangerous Mountains at Super-Fast Speeds

created at: 04/27/2011

Swiss ice climber Ueli Steck not only free climbs some of the most intense and scary ice-covered mountains using only hand-axes, he climbs them in just a few hours. He's broken speed records like crazy in the Alps - "Swiss mountaineer Ueli Steck set a record time for ascending "The Eiger's" treacherously steep north face. Steck destroyed the previous record (set by himself) by summiting the legendary 13,025 foot mountain in Switzerland's Bernese Alps in only two hours and 47 minutes. Beating your own records just for the sake of beating them?"
