Attention GZ Nation! We’re excited to announce the newest addition to our team; professional speed climber, solo climber, and record-setting alpinist, Ueli Steck.
Steck is known for his passionate devotion to all things alpine. He lives beyond the means of any normal man, usually scaling the side of Everest. The question may be, what can’t Ueli do?
A few of his recent accomplishments include:
• A solo speed climb up Eiger north face, Heckmair route, in 3 hours 54 minutes
Then broke his own record the following year at 2 hours 47 minutes and 33 seconds
• A solo speed climb up Matterhorn north face, Schmid route in 1 hour 56 minutes
• A solo climb up the south face of Shishapangma, clocked at 10 hours 30 minutes
The list goes on…
His incredible record of solo ascents and speed climbs, and a career that spans almost 20 years, proves his passion for living life to its fullest with zero regrets, zero boundaries, and zero apathy. Steck embodies the Goal Zero way of life in every way possible.
“My Sherpa 50 Solar Recharging Kit helps me stay connected with the world,” says Steck. “As a pro climber, I have to keep people updated on where I am and what I’ll be doing next. With Goal Zero, I never have to worry about running out of power.”
“We are excited to bring such an accomplished athlete to the Goal Zero Team,” says James Atkin, the Director of Community Marketing at Goal Zero. “Ueli Steck’s lifestyle is exactly what Goal Zero is all about and being able to solar power his lifestyle is definitely an honor.”
