8.000+Ueli Steck



A fateful accident in the Nuptse during the spring of 2017 interrupts the brilliant career of the mountaineer Ueli Steck, a leading mountaineer who stood out for his great climbs and his particular philosophy on how to reach the highest peaks on earth. The combination between the extreme difficulty of his projects and speed became his hallmarks.

With his trilogy of rapid ascents on the north faces of the Eiger, the Grandes Jorasses and the Matterhorn he became known beyond the mountaineering scene. But he wanted to go one step further and transfer his particular philosophy on the alpine rock to the eight-thousand in the Himalayas, and this book is his most direct and sincere testimony.

From his dream Annapurna to his sensational solo climb and in ten hours to the Shisha Pangma, Ueli captivatingly tells us how, thanks to hard training and great resolution, he made the leap from rock climbing to Himalayas. The emotion, the risk and the commitment that it assumes sprout in each of these pages. But he also reveals his most human facet and his words also tell us about feelings such as fear, love for his wife Nicole and his family, friendship and responsibility, and that inevitably draw and mark the trajectory of this exceptional man.
