Chatting to Ueli Steck

I recently interviewed Ueli Steck for Trek and Mountain magazine.

It was pretty hard work as he didn’t have much to say about anything really…. so I was glad I’d dipped into “Training for the New Alpinism” beforehand to give me a few ideas.

Nonetheless, I think I dragged out a few interesting quotes from him. I particularity like the response when I asked him if there is anything outside of training that interests him: “There is no time for anything else, there is not much time left in my days except for training.” Strangely, this made me feel better about my “lack” of accomplishments….
