Just spend two Nights in Camp two. Beautiful Weather and warm. I was taking the chance to go and have a look towards the Westshoulder. Conditions are great so far. But you never know it can change until in one month! So far we having a good time! Hopefully Tenjing Sherpa frostbite getting better soon so we canbe together on the mountain again. Right now it looks we have to save again camp two again. Expeditionweather forecast again very strong Winds for the next days. Afrer we keep going getting climatized, i stick to the roule to move on the mountain and not spending too many nights in camps. Like this we stay in shape and get used to the altitude!
joy is the essence to the success
Zwischen lebenshungrig und lebensmüde liegt nur ein schmaler Grat – das hat Ueli Steck im Laufe seiner Bergsteigerkarriere häufig genug erlebt. Anschaulich schildert er in diesem Buch Erfolge, Rückschläge und Einsichten der letzten Jahre.
"The stunning Skyline Ridge from Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau is basically what I see every day from Interlaken. It was on my tick list for quite a moment. Inspired from the 1962 Ascent of the two Mountain Guides Alfred Gertsch and Alfred Roth which climbed the Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau starting at the Mittellegihut, I just want to climb the whole ridge, valley to valley. "
- The Stunning Skyline Ridge from Eiger Mönch & Jungfrau..
- A great run on the Mont-Blanc Inominata Ridge...
- And the OCC® in Chamonix to finish a great summer in the Alps!
Without one full day of good weather we still climbed a lot. David and I climbed the Girona Route up to 7800 meters followed by the British Route to 7600m. Both in a single push up and down. It was interesting to see what it takes to climb in bad conditions on such a huge face.
Ueli Steck, the "Swiss Machine," 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.
