Uli Shtek, the future legend of conquering the peaks, the Swiss Machine and the owner of two Golden Ice Axes, was born on October 4, 1977 in Switzerland in Langnau im Emmental. He was fond of hockey and skiing as a child. He became interested in mountaineering as a 12-year-old boy. In adolescence, he trained at climbing gyms.

Despite his youth, Uli Shtek conquered difficult peaks one after another. By the age of 25, he already had an impressive and respectful track record. In 1998, a young mountaineer single-handedly reached the summit of Mengch on Heston’s lobby. In 2001, the Pointe-Walker of the Grand Joras Massif obeyed him.

In the same year, along with Uli Buler, the athlete first climbed Pumori – the peak in the Himalayas in the Mahalangur-Himal mountain range.

They spent time together, but did not lose it in vain – they improved their bikes, which undoubtedly contributed to the growth of skill. Continue reading
