Climbing Mount Eiger, Bernese Alps
The development of modern equipment and techniques allowed to approach the great alpine routes with greater serenity and pleasure. With “Friends”, “Nomics”, and light equipment, climbs became safer and faster. No more large bags, uncomfortable bivouacs and precarious belaying.
So, large mythical trips of the past have become great classics that alpinists relish when conditions are good. A must for all those who dream of reliving history and run the wild and beautiful mountains on the footsteps of the great climbers of the past.
Among all these legendary courses, I particularly like some … Mount Eiger by its north face is one of them.
The classical way Heckmair. 1800m ED. The dream of a lifetime, today one of the finest sides to climb. A splendid climbing, historical passages and abundant belay make this route major.
