Climbing Porn Smackdown: Ueli Steck vs Fred Beckey

Since we’re all caught up in the heady competitive spirit of last week I thought I might as well throw in this bit of one-upmanship and ask if anyone else out there finds it an unlikely coincidence that the two vids arrived at about the same time. I smell a smackdown…

In  the blue corner, weighing in at 80 kilos…

In the red corner, weighing in at 165 pounds…

Which one blows your hair back? Both, either, neither. Would your answer be the same if the soundtracks were switched? The one thing that’s clear is that you have to be a driven individual to put up speed records like Ueli or as many new routes as Fred. With that in mind, if Steck and Beckey met in a dark, deserted, iced-up chimney, and each stood in the other’s way of a new route (or speed record) would they be tied in as they emerged from the top? Would either of them be bleeding?
