Ueli Steck And Annapurna

PlanetMountain once again with the news making interview, this time with Ueli Steck after his incredible solo of the South Face of Annapurna:

Everything calmed down. Just like I’d already noticed at ABC the previous evening. And it was like that again. It quickly became dark and quiet. This was my chance. I was sure the winds would pick up again in the morning. So the only way to reach the summit was at night.

    Ultra impressive…major respect.

    As incredible as this ascent is, it also makes my (future) toil in the gym this winter seem not nearly as daunting. Campus workouts @ 68 degrees indoors when its cold and wet outside seems like a Hawaiian holiday in comparison.
