Eiger / Heckmair Route ED2 (classic!)

There are routes which every alpine climber want to do. One of them is Heckmair Route on North Face of Eiger, biggest wall in The Alps. Wall with history – before the first ascent in 1938, there died some climbers and wall has new nickname „Mordwand”. Today Heckmair Route is hard classic alpine route and usually teams needs 2 days of climbing. But speed record is below 3 hours…

If you go by normal route on Breithorn, then he could be one of the easiest 4000 metre peaks in the Alps. You can go to 3820 m by skilift. From there you have easy walk on glacier, and snow slope to summit. Very recommended to go there on skis.

Eiger west face on skis... almost

Eiger... One of most famous peaks in Alps. North Face of Eiger is 1800 meters high.  Heckmair Route on this face is iconic. But Eiger has also easier routes. On west face you will find route to peak. In good conditions you can go there on skis. Here is some photos from our trip. On summit of Eiger we have been 19 march 2015.

Murchison Falls WI4+

Murchison Falls WI4+ were the best "Grade 4" Ice fall which I try (We retreat, because we don't have time to end this icefall). Real "Ice river". Recommended! On the right you have Virtual Reallity WI6. Two great classic ice falls. If you do both, then will be nice ice day ;).

Hydrofobia WI5+

Hydrofobia WI5+ in Ghost Arena is Icefall, which you must do! Three pitches (WI3, WI5+, WI5+) are beautiful.
