I'm climbing Monch & Jungfrau Aug 25-26. My climbing partner is leaving after that to go to Austria. I have August 27 through Sept 2 and I'm interested in doing Eiger (Mittellegi or southwest route) or traveling down to Mont Blanc. I have to be in Zurich the evening of Sept 2 to head for Kilimanjaro but otherwise completely open.
I'm an experienced traveler, tend to be easy going and willing to figure out travel logistics, etc. (if we were to go down to Mont Blanc) on the fly. I know there's not much time to finalize plans, but there isn't a lot of special planning to do if you're already going to be in the Alps. We can swap climb resumes, and determine equipment needs but I'll be taking technical gear already for the other two climbs.
