Route Climbed: North Face - classical route (Heckmair) Date Climbed: September 1985
Perfect weather...good conditions...climbed it over the weekend in two days...lot of fun...shot a bunch of pictures (see at Eiger page)...would do it again...West face back to Station Eigergletscher was quite challenging...steep, loose rocks, ice, snow
Route Climbed: West flank Date Climbed: august 1988
Bivouaced at the foot of the flank. Long and very exciting climb (maby because I am a eiger fan), with tremendous view into the northface. Did it solo. altough the weather was beautiful, I only met two climbers (guide and client) on the entire way up.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
