Didn't Ueli's partner die during one of the climbs?

Beat the Swiss Machine? Seems dubious
Based on his book, Ueli was doing a lot of playing around during his record, e.g. climbing at least one peak with his wife, doing some others with a friend. He made it sound like "type I fun."
I have faith in you! Represent CO and the Rockies!

Be careful, Uli also lost a good friend doing them.

Super cool, Sean! Any chance you'll setup a tracker so we can follow along? (i.e live vicariously through your dot.)

There's no way I'm carrying one of those live trackers -- not only would it be creepy, but it would be yet another battery to charge. I do plan to carry a SPOT or something like that, though, so there will be live checkins from summits and towns. Keep your fingers crossed and washed...
