Ueli returns to London to share his Magic Moments of 2015.
Ueli Steck has witnessed some magic moments this year, including his astounding 82-peak summit project in the Alps this summer. Using only human power, he conquered this incredible challenge by climbing, biking and paragliding between each mountain peak, tackling an incredible 4000m ascent in just 62 days. Ueli said that other than climbing, his favourite mode of transportation was road cycling,
“It was so much! Especially going through some iconic roads on the Tour de France.”
On January 22nd at the London Geographical Society, Mountain Hardwear and Snow+Rock are hosting a night with Ueli Steck, where he will be sharing his latest line of feats, including his reclaimed Eiger record, in only 2 hours, 22 minutes.
To help prepare him for his adventure, the Mountain Hardwear product team worked with Ueli for 18 months to create a kit to take him the distance. Meticulously designed, the kit includes baselayers, insulation, shells, and a backpack. This kit will be available to consumers in Spring 2016 exclusively from Snow+Rock stores in London Covent Garden and Leeds.
Tickets will go on sale for Ueli’s lecture on the 14th December through www.worldexpeditions.co.uk. World Expeditions will be present with its brand new 2016 ‘Classics’ brochure, which features a compilation of its most extraordinary adventures around the globe, including a series of mountaineering expeditions.
