This January, Mountain Hardwear athlete Ueli Steck will be making the first UK appearance following the incredible solo ascent of the south face of Annapurna, certainly one of the toughest and deadliest high altitude mountains in the world.
Not to be deterred, despite a beating following rockfall during his last attempt in 2008, Ueli has once again delivered one of the most astounding achievements in mountaineering history.
On the 23rd of January, Ueli will take to the stage at the Royal Geographical Society to share inspiring stories of his recent adventures.
