The AAC is excited to bring legendary speed climber Ueli Steck to the Front Range!

Ueli "The Swiss Machine" Steck will present a visually stunning and interactive slideshow about his experiences climbing the world's largest mountains, setting speed records without oxygen, his daring 82 Summits Challenge and recent trip to the Himalaya.

Best known for his record shattering speed ascent of the Eiger, Ueli has never stopped pushing boundaries. On this tour he will share the triumphs and tragedies of his daring 82 Summits Challenge. In the summer of 2015, Ueli embarked upon the mammoth task of climbing 82 peaks, all 4,000+ meters, under his own power. He did so in just 62 days, but not without facing some serious obstacles along the way.

He will also tell of his recent expedition in the Himalaya, where he discovered Alex Lowe's body and got back to his roots of efficiently climbing big peaks.
