[VIDEO] Ueli Steck’s 82 Summit Challenge Almost Went Wrong On The Last Peak

While the rest of the alpine world has spent this Summer complaining about terrible conditions in the Alps, Ueli Steck has been busily dispatching the full 82 4,000 metre peaks in the range entirely under his own power.

Then again, what would you expect from the Swiss Machine? We caught up with Ueli shortly after the completion of this mammoth task which took him just 62 days in all.

Check out the video to find out how Ueli dealt with the physical strain of all that climbing, what he’s psyched for now and how it all almost went wrong in the final 24 hours.
