New Eiger North Face Speed Record

Postby WouterB » Thu Apr 21, 2011 9:32 pm

Swiss alpinist, Dani Arnold, climbed the North face solo in 2h hours 28 minutes and with this clearly beat the existing record from Ueli Steck.

I wonder how much of a difference it made that he did use the 2 fixed lines (2x 30m) and Ueli did not. Regardless, very impressive feat from both.
