This Film follows Eric Jones on the first Solo climb of the Eigers notorius North Face. The film traces the history of this great mountain including the early pre war attempts that gained the mountain its formidible reputation. the climax of the film re creates John Harlin's Five thousand foot fall during a winter ascent of the Eiger Direct in 1966. In order to film Eric on his Solo Climb Leo Dickison had to be lowered from a helicopter to Death Bivouac,this has produced some stunning footage.
