Four Minutes of PURE Terror -- Watch Mountain Climber Speed Climb with No Ropes
May 10, 2011
Mountain climber Uli Steck does a solo speed climb of the Eiger. It is important to know that this mountain is half the size of Mount Everest so there really is no need for supplemental oxygen at this height. Although we don't know for certain it would seem from the shots that a helicopter is available and is likely how he gets off the mountain.
VERY impressive climb nevertheless and breathtaking to watch.
