Ueli Steck speed solo Eiger record

What did you do this morning? Climb a mountain? Straight up the side with the cliff? By yourself? With no ropes?

This video shows Ueli Steck, from Switzerland, breaking the speed record for climbing the north side of Mount Eiger, which is also called the Death Wall because 64 people have died trying to climb it. The video is terrifying, exhilarating and beautiful.
