      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Ueli Steck speed solo on the Eiger NF VIDEO

Recommended Posts

Doesn't he wobble as if he was about to lose his balance a couple of times? It looks like out of control knucklehead climbing to me.

"out of control knucklehead"...those are not the words that come to mind when i watch that (I think maybe Polishbob posted a higher rez version of this video a couple months ago?).

 

Definitely beyond any limits I have had or will ever. People do amazing things and take incredible risks, I don't think that makes them knuckleheads.

The dude looks out of control to me. I may be wrong, I hope that I am wrong.

I wish someone would have done a fly over in a heli and video'd my free solo of Das Toof though.
