Ueli Steck : New record on the MatterhornUeli Steck finds himself in perfect physical conditions. For the past few weeks, the weather in the Alps has been beautiful and the conditions on the great Northfaces in the Alps have been great . After Ueli Steck's speed record on the Grandes Jorasses over the Colton-Macintyre route, it was very likely, that he was also going to try to establish a new speed record on the Matterhorn. Although in 2006 Ueli set up a new record on the difficult Bonatti
route in 25 hours, this time he would try to break the record on the
classic Schmid route on the Matterhorn Northface.
