This really is worth watching over and over. I've witnessed many amazing feats both on video and in real life, but this was the first video in a LONG time to render me speechless. When I saw Ueli charge up that final snow slope, my jaw honestly dropped!

the slip at 58 seconds get things started pretty good. And the official time finishes off well, too.

Does anybody know how Ueli descended? Did he rap off or get a lift from the chopper? It would save a lot of weight if you didn't have to worry about the walk off.

He carried the rope up, but I was wondering the same thing.
