Watch Ueli Steck run up 18 4,000-metre peaks in a day in this short EpicTV film.
“After Ueli Steck’s partner Michi Wohlleben suffered a debilitating paragliding injury descending from one of their very first mountains, questions start to arise as to whether the guys can keep up the required pace to finish their challenge.
“With this in mind, Steck begins to look for new partners and teams up with Swiss ski mountaineer Andreas Steindl. The pair manage to accomplish a huge day in Switzerland, summiting eighteen (yes, eighteen) 4,000-metre peaks in one day.
“The feat is a huge push forward in the project and gives Steck back the advantage he needs. To top off his buzz, he revels in summiting the Matterhorn early the next day.”
