Stay­ing well-bal­anced

Vertical (English) - - Editorial -

Ueli Steck walks the tightrope along the ridge­line that links the Blanche de Peuterey's three sum­mits dur­ing his sum­mer voy­age across the 4000-me­ter peaks of the Alps. A note­wor­thy per­for­mance? With­out a doubt: climb­ing each sum­mit in such a short time pe­riod will al­ways be phys­i­cally de­mand­ing. Ueli prefers to talk about a dream come true and each incredible mo­ment he ex­pe­ri­enced up there. The mag­i­cal jour­ney was un­for­tu­nately dark­ened by the fa­tal fall of Dutch climber Martjin Seueren, who ac­com­pa­nied Ueli on the Rochefort Ridge tra­verse.
