"Hulking perilously above the village of Grindelwald in Switzerland is the infamous north face of the Eiger. The face - physically the biggest in the alps - also has the biggest reputation.

A dizzying 1800m in vertical height, the north face is world famous among climbers and is well known to the general public. It's a magnet for alpinists and tourists alike, some who climb it and many who just gaze up at its magnificent but deadly architecture from the safety of the valley."


In this article with full colour topo, UKC Chief Editor Jack Geldard takes us up the North Face of the Eiger.

With kit lists, tactics and route info, plus history, videos and useful links - this is your one stop Eiger shop.

For armchair climbers and would-be ascensionists alike, this article has everything you need to catapult you from the office straight to Death Bivvy. Good luck!

Cheers,

Mick
