Description

The famous 1800 m Eiger North face is the highest wall of the Alps and a mythical mountain challenge for those who are well-prepared and brave!

Historically, the North Face of the Eiger was always regarded as a daunting feat. However, nowadays the Eiger North Face is a perfect climbing option during autumn and springtime. The cold weather and resulting snow and ice enable the rocks to remain stuck to the mountain. And although you will need some technical climbing experience and solid fitness, this guided climb will allow you to enjoy the thrill of climbing Eiger safely.

As your mountain guide, I will carefully review all factors, as well as your technical climbing level before deciding on the right climbing objectives. In order to ensure your safety, you will first need to take the “north faces of the Alps training program” before joining the Eiger climb. This will allow us to get to know each other and for me to assess your climbing level. Furthermore, you will gain the necessary technical skills.  On the preparation training program, we will go through some smaller test climbs and might climb routes such as Aiguille VerteSupercouloir du Tacul, or some gullies on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi, etc. Read more about climbing the north faces of the Alps here

In addition to the excitement that climbing the Eiger North Face generates, I always recommend this 2 to 3 days program because:

  • It is the biggest face of the entire Alps.
  • It is one of the most famous mountaineering routes in history. Many stories have been written about ascents on the North Face of Eiger.
  • The climbing line is logical and very elegant.

So, are you brave enough to tackle the challenging Eiger? Then send me a request and let’s start planning this exciting adventure! I will be glad to lead you up the biggest wall of the Alps.

If you’d like to climb up another gorgeous North face in the Swiss Alps, you can also join me on this 3-day north face expedition to the top of  Matterhorn.

About the guide

guide profile img

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
