the entire Eiger Nordwand from here.
Did you ski to the station or did you take the train, Tim?
It looks like there's a lot of snow on the ground. There is a ski lift right across from the station. Was the lift working?
Marc, I took the train from Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen and walked a couple of hundred yards? uphill past the hotel there at K.S.-seems like there was a track for snowcats and other equipment right next to me? Don't remember if the lift was operating,however?
If I had to do again(which I will, I hope!) I would have gone back to Interlaken via Grindelwald, so I could have taken in some other views of the Eiger.
Thank you, Tim. I stayed in Grindelwald for a week looking for a climbing partner, and saw the entire Eiger North Face only once because of bad weather. Most of the time I could see only the lower half of the wall. Made an attempt on Munch, but had to retreat due to bad weather again. But, climbed Lauberhorn on the same trip.
""The most dangerous time for the climber is the first year after starting to climb. He does not yet know the dangers well enough, cannot estimate things properly, and is far too easy-going."
