Ueli Steck: A New Vision


Ueli Steck is known for his speed-alpine ascents, including having records on the Grandes Jorasses and the Eiger. His pursuits include climbing multiple Swiss Alps in a day, with a paraglider (which he calls "the simplest way to fly") to get from the summit of one peak to the base of the next. Here, he learns the ropes.
