About the Author

Ueli Steck was born in 1976 and considered one of the world's best extreme climbers, and the single most successful climber ever from Switzerland. At only age 17, he mastered the highest rating of difficulty in climbing (9th level in UIAA), while his most spectacular achievement was the ascent in record time of each of the three most difficult north faces of the Alps. In 2008, Steck received the Eiger Award for his mountaineering achievements, and was awarded the Piolet d'Or, the "Oscar of Mountaineering," twice, in 2009 and again in 2014 for his first solo ascent of Annapurna. He died while on a training climb on the Himalayan peak Nuptse on April 30, 2017.

Reviews

"The climber's posthumously published autobiography gives an intimate look at a mountain legend and takes on new meaning after his death."--Tim Neville "Outside magazine "
"This insightful, personal reflection highlights events that shaped his life. ... Steck's book is a humble, exuberant memoir that will preserve his legacy."--Climbing magazine
My Life in Climbing takes the reader from a commercial climb up Everest conceived of as a fitness outing to Steck's possibility-defying solo of the South Face of Mount Annapurna and then back to the Alps to climb its eighty highest peaks in a single outing. It's the profile of a climber exploring the outer limits of performance in the mountains in ways that mirror the approach taken by Alex Honnold on rock.--Tom Valis "Gripped magazine "
This book stands as a testament to everything that Steck did achieve. It is a remarkable diary of his climbs.--John Porter "The Alpine Journal 2018 "
Hugely inspirational, this book ranks among the must-reads in mountain literature.--Dr Arun Nayak "The Himalayan Journal "
