Solo summit of Annapurna?

World famous (and some would say infamous) climber Ueli Steck has apparently done a solo climb and summit on Annapurna via the south face. Check out the initial reporting here.  This is just beyond words amazing- between the time he accomplished it in and doing it solo, it’s not terribly far from a true feat of humanity to pull off something like this.

Nearly equally as amazing as Steck may be, is the marketing machine that comes behind him thanks to sponsors. This climb was literally just a few weeks ago, but in that short time since a super slick video of the climb has been released. See it here.
