Eiger Summit

This week saw settled weather in Switzerland at the start of the week, and so our Eiger and Matterhorn groups headed straight over to Grindlewald and Zermatt as soon as possible to take the weather window. These three photos are from the successful ascent of the Mitilleggi Arete of the Eiger, with Dean on the summit. As you can see from the photos, the conditions were perfect, and there was almost no wind. The Matterhorn group summited too, as did everyone on the Mont Blanc course this week. Not a bad record for 100% success on this classic Alpine trilogy. For more details on the Eiger course, follow this link; http://www.icicle-mountaineering.ltd.uk/eiger.shtml.
