Ueli Steck

"...I could have climbed [these routes] faster, but I was not prepared to take that risk...it's a very fine balance. And of course, the more you do it, the more things can go wrong." - Ueli Steck, Professional Mountaineer

Professional Mountaineer Ueli Steck has scampered up some of the most demanding routes in Europe including the North Face of the Matterhorn (4,477m Schmidt Route in 1 hour, 56 minutes, 40 seconds), the North Face of the Eiger (3,970m Heckmair Route in 2 hours, 47 minutes, 33 seconds) and the North Face of Grandes Jorasses 4,208m Mac Intyre Route in 2 hours, 21 minutes, 28 seconds) - breaking world records as he went.

As a Wenger ambassador, we count on Ueli to test and develop new Swiss Army knives in some of the world's most unforgiving outdoor environments.
