The Eiger and the Monch

Just got back from a few days climbing in the Bernese Oberland with David, where we managed to Climb the Eiger and the Monch.

We’ve skied as well as climbed together for many years now, so it was excellent to get another big peak in the bag.  I’ve not climbed the Eiger for quite a few years and was surprised by how much the mountain has changed since the early 00’s – basically it’s now much drier, with far more climbing on rock as opposed to a mix or rock, snow and ice.

The top ridge on the Monch was another highlight – with the path going right along the crest this season, making for some excellent spacewalking!
