Posts about Eiger

The Eiger is a 3,970-metre-high mountain in the Bernese Swiss Alps: the easternmost peak of a ridge crest that extends across the Mönch to the Jungfrau. The northern side of the mountain – known the world over as the “North Face of the Eiger” or the Eigernordwand – rises about 3,000 m above Grindelwald and other inhabited valleys of the Bernese Oberland. The southern side faces the deeply glaciated region of the Jungfrau-Aletsch, covered by some of the largest glaciers in the Alps.

Hardly the best photo I’ve ever taken, but I thought I’d post it anyway, for a few reasons. Firstly, to remind myself to get there and take this view properly one day, looking south east (and home) from the approach to Bern railway station. Secondly because it’s such wonderful light, despite having been spoiled by […]
