/ Andy Kirkpatrick et al Eiger North Face
In March 2013 Ross Kain, Andy Kirkpatrick and Neil Chelton attempted to repeat the 2006 Russian route on the Eiger North face. Over 4 days they climbed 20 pitches, until they were stopped by the crux A5 pitch, as well as warm weather (increased stonefall). All safely back snug in their cotton socks.
Andy was tweeting from the face, TobyA was trying to help him with some translations of the route description.
