A climbing legend has died near Mt. Everest. Ueli Steck aka The Swiss Machine was one of my modern day heroes, putting up solo speed records and truly pushing the human capacity to thrive in the mountains. He will be missed, and I think of his family at this time. He died doing what he loved in a place he loved.
