Late in the summer my buddies and I were lucky enough to visit the superb Bernese Oberland for the first time. Before attempting the infamous Eiger we were looking for a straightforward but enjoyable outing for some acclimatisation and the Mönch at 4107m, easily accessible from the Jungfraujoch station, seemed an obvious choice. So after a wallet-crunching ride on the cog train with half the population of Japan the fun began! Anyway the entertainment was duly recorded so for anyone interested in viewing a short HD film of this splendid outing including some great views of the Eiger, Schreckhorn, Finsteraarhorn, Jungfrau, plus the spectacular, exposed Mönch summit ridge then please use the embedded link:
If you wish to sample the full High Def experience and your computer has enough va va voom, you should be able to change the "Quality" icon to at least 720p HD in the bottom right hand corner on the You Tube screen. Anway all constructive critique, feedback or comments welcome and hopefully it will inspire a few folks to climb the Monk and visit this amazing area! :-)
Cheers Fred and many thanks for your kind words and attachment! :-) For anyone else interested you can view our 2 day adventure on the Eiger via the following link!
"Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end."
