Rick Kollath

The infamous 1938 Heckmair Route on the Eiger's North Face is a climb wreathed in intimidation and tragedy, but surprisingly accessible to the modern alpinist. This handy pocket guide dares the Everyman climber to tackle this legendary tour by providing comprehensive, easy-to-follow topos and concise route-finding advice. Plus, up-to-date information about when to climb, equipment, bivouac sites, and other strategies for a successful ascent of the much-coveted Eigerwand.

Features Include:

  • Outstanding route topos with additional detailed topos for crux and difficult-to-navigate areas.
  • Route descriptions, including suggested belay stances and bivouac info.
  • Ruin this booklet: topos and route descriptions are printed on tear-resistant and waterproof paper, and are designed to be cut out and carried on the climb!
  • Advice on climbing strategy, route finding, and gear.
  • Information, drawings, and maps for the approach and descent.

Redirection of your order once despatched

We therefore recommend that you check your delivery address and postcode carefully before completing the order as this will not be checked by us before despatch. We also recommend that orders are sent to an address where someone will be available all day to receive the parcel, e.g. a work address.
