2013 was a big year for Swiss climber Ueli Steck. His epic on Everest was huge news, perhaps for all the wrong reasons, but then true to form he returned to the Himalaya and made one of the most incredible ascents in climbing history on Annapurna.
Here's a nice video of Ueli from Mountain Hardwear, and last week UKC grabbed a quick interview with the man himself at the ISPO tradeshow. We pulled him aside in to a huge tent, and asked him what was his next climbing mission... it was Scotland!
