Not to be missed and far more important to me in regards to how real well balanced Ueli truly is, he turned back 100 meters from the summit of Everest on the 29th of May. Why, according to Ueli and his site which is following all his Himalaya Speed Endeavors
, his feet are far more important to him, than the summit of Everest. WOW!"It’s not long. But my feet. I am on another mountain, without oxygen. I have to accept that. I turn down. As fast as I can down. I do not want to sacrifice any of my toes for Everest....The adventure Everest is over. Pity, I was doing well. I imagined that I would only suffer up there. Not at all. I am happy about that. I had a great feeling, I moved on, that’s what I am looking for, although I turned back 100 meters from summit. Of course I would have been nice to stand on top. For a moment I have thought to ask a sherpa if I could breathe 10 minutes of oxygen. Then I would have had again warm feet. But then I would have stood on another peak. So better to go down. Everest will stay and I can come back! "
