Any one know what type of eagle it is?

Not sure it is an eagle actually. Bears resemblance to a Himalayan griffon vulture.

I had wondered - have a very good close up of it (which not being climbing related obviously can't be uploaded here...) and it's beak looks very unlike an eagles. Thanks!

It's a Lammergeir. Never heard of it before, but Google is my friend...
