  • Lovely sunny day - stopped for lunch with this view - a little low cloud so summit not visible but wow the view was still amazing and well worth a visit to the area.  more »
  • The Eiger. Speaking of the north wall here, it is famous as an impregnable climb. Moreover, it is surprised that the railway which goes to Jungfraujoch in this mountain passes.
