Grindlewald, SWITZERLAND

Climbs 40 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 3930m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Because if its famous north face, the Eiger is one of the most famous and written about peaks in the world. The battle to climb this face has captivated the interest of climbers and non-climbers alike since the time of the first attempt in 1934.

The Eiger is a striking peak from all sides and a worthy climb by any of its many routes, none of which are particularly easy. The easiest way to the summit is via the West Flank & West Ridge, which is a very complex route of about the same level of difficulty as the Hûrnli ArÆte on the Matterhorn with rock pitches up to III and ice to 40 degrees.
