The Eiger’s peak is 13,029 ft (3,970 m) and is located in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. This video shows Ueli Steck beating his previous record of 4 hours by basically an hour. Keep in mind the first ascent of this face was first done in three days, so this guy is basically sprinting up the mountain.
