This is a gorgeous shot!
I had thaught that I knew all the views of the mountains of the Bernese Oberland. But this is a great surprise. Fantastic!
Thanks for enlightening me that the Eiger has a side other than the North Face. Great Photo!
Thanks for the compliment! The Eiger is an awesome mountain from all sides!
Do people climb the south face, too? I'd never heard of it.
There is one commonly described route on the face. It was climbed first in 1937 (second ascent not until 1964) with a direct finish variation added in 1974.
It is very difficult: TD- with pitches of V and VI-. The rock is described as poor with frequent rock fall.
There is indeed a route up the south face from the Eiger, it was made in 2001 - not that i've climbed it, no no :) i'm not that good (yet).

It is indeed very difficult (7+ on the french climbing scale, which is a VIII / 5.11c. 22 pitches, with bivouac).
That's a fantastic shot!
