Among the more interesting Himalayan expeditions currently on the go is that of Swiss speed climber Uelie Steck, having recently arrived at Shishapangma Base Camp in Tibet. In this season he will attempt to climb Shishapagma (8027m), Cho Oyo (8201m) and Everest (8850m). As if that were not enough, as a warm-up he has just finished climbing Lobuje and the north face of Cholatse, two 6000m peaks in the Everest region of Nepal.
