Best Climbing Experience
Climbing the entire north east ridge of the eiger (Mitellegi Integrale - Valley to Ostegg Hut, Ostegg to Mittelegi Hut, over the summit to the Monchjochs hut) with a friend of mine (Darragh) in July 2008. 3.5 intense and exhilarating days, just enough time to climb before the afternoon storms rolled in.

Anything Else We Should Know
The best onsight grades were all on especially brave days when the wind was blowing in the right direction! I prefer easier, long days out in the mountains.
