Ueli Steck - the world's best alpinist or a climber on the edge of insanity? Who knows. What we do know is that he has speed-soloed some of the Alps' greatest North Faces in lightning quick times.

What takes many teams three days takes Ueli Steck less than 3 hours.

In this video by professional photographer and UKC Gear Reviewer Jon Griffith, we see Ueli in action speed soloing the classic 1000m ED1 route The Ginat on the North Face of the Droites, Chamonix.
