Ueli Steck


Ueli Steck was born in 1976 and was considered one of the world’s best extreme climbers, and the single most successful climber ever from Switzerland. At only age 17, he mastered the highest rating of difficulty in climbing (9th level in UIAA), while his most spectacular achievement was the ascent in record time of each of the three most difficult north faces of the Alps. In 2008, Steck received the Eiger Award for his mountaineering achievements.
