Goodbye Ueli

On the death of the great Swiss mountaineer Ueli Steck.

Renowned for his speed-climbing records on the faces of the Alps, Ueli twice won the Piolet d’Or (Golden Ice Axe), mountaineering’s highest honour.

Ueli will always remain a model of courage and simplicity for all athletes and mountain lovers.

Läb wohl Ueli
