The Eiger is one of the most sought after summits in the Alps and a formidable challenge. Located in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland, it is a major Alpine classic. Chronicled in many well known alpine climbing books such as 'The White Spider' by Heinrich Harrer, the Eiger is home to one of the most imposing north faces in the Alps. Steeped in history, the Eiger has a reputation that far precedes itself. This is a climb for anyone looking to indulge into the history of alpine climbing, and experience what it's like to be on this magnificent mountain for your yourself.
We make the ascent to the summit via the Mittellegi ridge and expect the climb to be a from 9-12 hours round trip in good conditions. We base our Eiger climbs out of Chamonix because there are some great training routes in the Mont Blanc massif. Climbing these handpicked routes prior to going to the Eiger puts our clients in the best possible shape to be successful. This isn't a trip for beginners and will require a good level of fitness and climbing experience. That said it most definitely is a trip for bragging rights
