The dream-team of speed soloist Ueli Steck and trad specialist Alex Honnold have joined forces to attempt to break the speed record on The Nose on El Cap, Yosemite.
The pair, both world class climbers, will attempt to beat the previous record set by Yuji Hirayama and Hans Florine. The record time, an astonishing 2:37, was set back in 2008.

On their first ‘training run’, just hours after meeting for the first time, Honnold and Steck climbed the route in 4:40 and the following day they climbed it in 4:20.

Ik ben wel benieuwd wat de Zwitser samen met de jonge beloftevolle Amerikaan gaat kunnen verwezenlijken, dit kan nog spannend worden… Heerlijk hoe ze even 2 cordeés ‘voorsteken’ 🙂
