          If there is one place on earth where climbers celebrate the arrival of the next snowstorm, it has to be Scotland. Each winter, pounded by the North Atlantic winds, the Scottish Highlands are covered by a layer of snow and frost at the mercy of weather conditions. Here, winter climbing has existed for more than a century, and the smell of adventure is as authentic as the whisky borne of the local peat. Climbing is done from the ground up, without bolts, and generally onsight. An introduction to the very modern ethics of Scottish mixed climbing. It's in those condition that Ueli Steck flashed "the secret" (X, 10), the hardest climb in Ben Nevis.

                      The South face of Annapurna has been a high altitude forcing ground for progressive Himalayan climbing. An alpine style ascent of this face was completed as early as 1984. In 1992 Pierre Béghin and Jean-Christophe Lafaille tried a route to the right of the 1970 British south pillar, reaching above 7,300m. Retreating from this point in poor weather, Béghin fell to his death. Ueli Steck (Switzerland) completed this route in a 28-hour round trip (8-9 October) from an advanced base beneath the ca 2,700m wall, climbing up and down the top section at night to escape strong daytime winds. Dopo il 1970 e l'ascensione della squadra di Chris Bonington, la parete sud dell'Annapurna è stata teatro di alpinismo di alto livello in stile alpino. Vi si sono cimentati, tra gli altri, i francesi Pierre Beghin e Jean-Christophe Lafaille, con la morte del primo durante una terribile discesa da 7.300 metri di quota. Lo svizzero Ueli Steck ha aperto una nuova via, leggendaria, scalando di notte per sfruttare le buone condizioni di rigelo. Ha compiuto l'impresa da solo, l'8 e il 9 ottobre, completando salita e discesa in 28 ore. Video by Vinicio Stefanello (Planetmountain.com) & Francesco Mansutti for the Piolets d'Or 2014. Courmayeur, Chamonix - Mont Blanc.
