Video: Ueli Steck vs. Eiger

Ueli Steck sets a new record speed soloing the Eiger's infamous north face, which has claimed over 64 lives. It takes him only 2h27min to tackle the 1700m of vertical ice and rock and with that he breaks his own record for 1h7min. For some perspective, it took the first climbers 3 days to reach the summit of this 3970m mountain.  It's a heart-stopper for those of you who have spent any time on the rocks.
