Mak­ing a hat-trick of records, Swiss alpin­ist and Suun­to ambas­sador Ueli Steck has claimed fastest times for solo ascend­ing the north faces of Eiger (in Switzer­land), Grandes Jorass­es (locat­ed between France and Italy) and Mat­ter­horn (between Italy and Switzer­land). Ueli climbed on the Eiger and Grandes Jorass­es dur­ing 2008 and on the Mat­ter­horn in ear­ly 2009. Watch the high­lights of these amaz­ing record break­ing ascents:

In Sep­tem­ber Steck com­plet­ed an expe­di­tion up Makalu, which is 8463m above sea lev­el where he bat­tled intense frost­bite on his feet. It was an amaz­ing ascent to the top made even more impres­sive by the phys­i­cal impact it had on Ueli’s body and how he over­came the adversity.

So why are we talk­ing about Steck? (Besides his amaz­ing accom­plish­ments?) One of Steck­’s equip­ment spon­sors is Suun­to, they hap­pen to be the com­pa­ny behind our brand event this week. Tomor­row start­ing at 9am PST we will launch the Suun­to brand event. We encour­age you to log on to the site ear­ly as some mod­els will sell out quickly.

Remem­ber in order to view the event you need to be a Clymb mem­ber. If you are inter­est­ed in a mem­ber­ship invi­ta­tion, please con­tact me direct­ly, kevin.p [at] the­clymb [dot] com.
