4 Days

Jul, Aug


Description

I want to invite you to climb the Eiger (3970 m), an emblematic mountain in the Swiss Alps!

Also, it’s my favorite guiding trip! It offers stunning views. When we climb the Mittellegi ridge, we will see majestic glaciers to the left. Besides, the beautiful green meadows of Grindelwald on the right. Also, we will have the opportunity to look into the famous and iconic Eiger North Face!

The Eiger climb is rated D, with sections of Class V rock or S. We will need ice axes and crampons to climb it. We will begin from the Eismeer train station (3159 m) on a glacier approach. The trail very exposed to rock and icefall.

Although the biggest hazard of this climb is crossing under the Eigerjocher towards the Mittellegi Hut (3355 m), once we pass the Eigerjocher, the ascent is up class V rock, leading to an easy traverse to the hut.

Then the climb continues along a knife edge ridge. We will use anchored ropes to cling on to if we need to. This way, we will be able to belay and pull up on them. We will also find snow and ice on the summit ridge towards the top of the mountain.

Then, we will climb down to Eigergletscher (West Face), or traverse to the Jungfraujoch via Eigerjocher D.

It’s important to note that once we have started the climb, we will not have the option of turning around. This means we are committed to climb up to the summit. At the Eiger, conditions may change rapidly and there is always the chance of rock and ice fall as we ascend.

It will take us about 4 to 5 hours to reach the top, and the same time to go down. We will not abseil down, so you must be able to climb down grade 3-4. I always short rope my clients for speed and safety!

I offer a 4-day program with preparation. Otherwise, I also offer a 2- and 3-day option, but only for very experienced climbers, with a very good resumé of climbs.

So, contact me if you want to climb the Eiger! I will answer any questions you may have about the program. It will be an unforgettable climb!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
