Eiger Speed Climb. Solo

Ueli Steck is bat-shit Fah King insane. But that’s an opinion, not a diagnosis. It may also be slightly tainted by bias.
This Ueli fellow currently owns the speed-climb record for the Eiger Sanction
North Face (Heckmair Route). He made the climb in a brisk 2:47:33 hours… and– this is the bit with the high pucker-factor– he did it solo. Live without a net. No belay. As my colleague Rusty stated… Balls. Of. Steel.
