Ueli Steck Sets New Speed Record Eiger 2015

by

Ueli Steck, the “Swiss Machine,” has yet again broken the record for a solo speed ascent of the North Face of the Eiger. On November 16, 2015, Steck took advantage of good weather and climbing conditions and pushed for the summit of the classic Heckmair Route (ED2, 1800m, 1938) in a mere 2 hours 22 minutes.

This super fast ascent by Steck regains the record take from him by Dani Arnold, who had captured the previous record with an ascent of 2 hours, 28 minutes, in 2011. This is the third time Steck has set a record time on the Eiger, breaking Arnold's time by 6 minutes.
