Die Schweizer Maschinen

This guy is a monster.  Friends, fans, and loved ones, I give you two videos of Ueli Steck, Swiss speed mountaineer/climber; first, climbing the Grandes Jorasses, and second, recreating his record-breaking ascent of the north face of the Eiger in 2 hours, 47 minutes.  Incredible.  Or, as the Swiss say, “Unglaublich!”

I'm 27, and happily married to a pretty girl named Melissa with a little boy named Elijah. From the Shenandoah Valley, currently hanging out in Richmond, VA. I love exploring the wild places around the area. I write two blogs; Mountain Ramblings is about my personal explorations in the mountains and valleys that I live around.
