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.
