Race you to the top! fearless free climber who scales mountains with just a pick axe


  • Swiss daredevil made it up 4,000ft face in just 2hr 21min
With just an ice-axe in his hands and crampons on his feet, this fearless climber faces death with each strike of his pick as he races to scale a 4,000ft icy rockface with no ropes to stop his fall.
The stomach-churning images show world-class mountaineer, Ueli Steck, 35, from Ringgenberg, Switzerland smashing the record for scaling the north face of the Grandes Jorasses -part of Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc.

The spectacular pictures were captured by a British extreme photographer in a helicopter 13,000ft in the air.
