The Swiss Machine Ueli Steck has gone and done it again – this time without even trying apparently. On the weekend of August 18/19, Ueli and his friend Markus Zimmerman headed up the Schilthorn train for a leisurely paraglider flight over to the Rottal Hut where they hung out for the night in preparation for an early morning climb and flight from the Jungfrau. Conditions turned out to be ideal not only for climbing but for flying as well and Ueli ended up climbing and paragliding from the summit not only of the Jungfrau but of the Mönch and Eiger as well. In just over 12 hours.
In this interview, Ueli gives us the lowdown on his very big day out.
