to the classic north face route:the ramp,traverse of gods,exit cracks and the final snow field... Yes it's a dream of each climber. Thanks for sharing.

I sat there in Kleine Scheidegg for several hours, just staring at that mountain.
I have wanted to see the Eiger since I was in elementary school. Dream realized, at long last.

The dream is not complete until you stand on the summit. Ask me:)

Eric,
It was around 0-5*F when I took that picture?
So, yeah, it wasn't exactly balmy!
lolol.

I was there in April several years ago. Not much snow at the station, but plenty on the mountain in front of Kleinde Scheidegg. I think it's called Lauberhorn. I climbed it to the summit in full condition. It was cold but not -5 F.
I was looking for a partner crazy enough to climb the Eiger with me. Thank God nobody agreed to go. Too early in the season.

Marc,
I enjoy hearing climber's stories about the Eiger. The more I read about that mountain, the more I want to know all about it.

Boriss,
Seeing the Eiger was an amazing experience, the best part of my entire vacation!

I think I am hooked on mountains.

"The North Face", a feature length film based on a true story. Produced in Germany, all in German with English subtitles. A FANTASTIC movie, go see it. Gave this great shot a 10, as I have on all that I've looked at

Thanks, Jarpup!
That photo of mine just doesn't do that place justice.
I am heading back there in early October to spend a few more days around the Eiger/Moench/Jungfrau.
Needless to say, I can't wait!
