Superb! He looks like he is literally running up that (and of course he probably is!)

Animal.... is this his normal climbing speed ? How long did you have to start out before he got to you ? Were you climbing with Ueli or with someone else ? did you reach the summit ? sorry about all the questions Jon :)

All images of Ueli on his speed climbs are re-enactments. A solo has to be a solo otherwise its not fair if there are a bunch of photographers on the route at the same time. We rapped down the whole route from the summit and got select shots. So yes, these are totally set-up but this really is how fast he climbs on these speed ascents
