On account of its North Face, the Eiger (3970m) is the most famous peak of the Bernese Alps. Consisting in part of brittle limestone, it is a striking bulwark above Grindelwald’s green valley basin.

The first ascent of the Eiger is achieved by Charles Barrington and his mountain guides Christian Almer and Peter Bohren via the western flank. This approach is still considered the normal route, though it’s rather difficult. In 1864 the first woman stands atop the Eiger – the Englishwoman Lucy Walker. Her guide is Melchior Anderegg. She is, of course, accompanied by members of the Walker family and other guides. A man alone with a lady in a mountain hut is unthinkable in Victorian England. The Northeast (Mittelegi) Ridge, heretofore considered “impossible”, is descended for the first time in 1885. Three local mountain guides, Fritz Amatter, Fritz Steuri and Samuel Brawand, together with the Japanese Yuko Maki, are the first to succeed in climbing the ridge on September 10, 1921.

The latest milestone in climbing the Eiger’s North Face is reached in September 2005 by the American John Harlin, whose father perished here 40 years ago. An entire IMAX film crew accompanies Harlin. The resulting film will be shown worldwide in movie theaters under the title "The Alps" after spring 2007.
