New Speed Climbing Record Eiger 2015

Watch Ueli Steck, the “Swiss Machine,” filmed by a drone, that 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.
