Lauper Route
Eiger from the northeast. Mönch on the left. The North Face is in shadow on the right, and the Mittellegi Ridge is the left skyline.

The Lauper Route on the Northeast Face is shown in red. The solid line is the original ascent route. Dashed lines are options often used when snow and ice conditions allow.

I was wondering if these routes were as steep as they looked, or maybe were just foreshortened by the lens. Then I found Diego's posting and got the answer! Great Eiger series, Fred. ****

Davo Karnicar, Slovenian extreme skier, who was the first man skiing without interruption from Everest, also did the NE wall of Eiger. He did not start just from the summit, but little below. The descent is mentioned here.
