Ueli Steck: Nat Geo Adventurer of the Year

Ueli Steck: Nat Geo Adventurer of the Year

We’re proud to congratulate Alpinist and Goal Zero Ambassador Ueli Steck for being nominated as one of the National Geographic Adventurers of the Year. For the past ten years, National Geographic has honored those who have achieved extraordinary achievement in exploration, adventure sports, conservation, and humanitarianism.

Ueli’s ambition to push his limits and test himself on the world’s highest peaks earned him the nickname “The Swiss Machine” and a spot on this esteemed list. His growing list of accomplishments includes 5.13 solos, a 2008 speed record on the North Face of the Eiger that grabbed international attention, and a more recent 28-hour speed record on the south face of Annapurna in the Himalaya.

We’re proud to have Ueli on our team of ambassadors. He embodies Goal Zero’s values; living with zero apathy, zero boundaries, and zero regrets. To learn more about Ueli and his take on the future of climbing watch the video above or check out his ambassador page.


Ueli stays charged on his adventures with the Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Recharger, Switch 8 Recharger, Nomad 13 Solar Panel, and Sherpa 50 Power Pack. Visit GoalZero.com to learn more.

    It was a genuine pleasure to watch and listen to Ueli’s philosophy of mountaineering and sport. Even better would have been to provide him a more diverse, temporal platform to elaborate on his tenacity and pursuit of excellence in climbing, rather than to edit his comments into one long, albeit rushed snippet. Please consider allowing these stories to tell themselves in a longer time span, and resist the urge to pack these amazing and thoroughly genuine people into tidy sound bytes of marketing. There is so much more to Ueli that makes him and what he does magical, and this magic could easily be better harnessed to intuitively sell Goal Zero products. J.W.
