Eiger: Mittellegi ridge. Full...
Eiger: Mittellegi ridge. Full of ice. 20 minutes after I took this picture, the 2 climbers you see fell over us over 1000 meters in absolute silence. They had obviously problems with the ice and the fixing. We were just below them waiting. Sept. 3, 1961

Disturbing to see this image right before the tragedy happened.

Quite Sad, but is it me, or are the climbers not wearing crampons?

The upper two fell. The lower two began to tremble and could not climb anymore for a while. See my trip report.
