Freddie Wilkinson and Ueli Steck speed up Cholatse

When a world-class climber like Ueli Steck asks you to help him prepare for some upcoming 8000-meter alpine-style speed ascents in the Khumbu…what do you do?  If you’re Freddie Wilkinson, you buy a ticket, pack as little gear as possible and head straight to Kathmandu!

 

And, while we could wax super-poetic about the amazing speed, ever-changing weather conditions and sketchy bivvies that were common on Freddie’s and Ueli’s remarkable climb up Cholatse, we’d rather you simply take a gander at this incredible video brought our way by the good folks at Mountain Hardwear and Sender Films.  It rocks
