Title: Eiger Climb
Post by: Jay-Bear on Jun 5 2005, 20:25
Hi all! My climbing partner and I are planning on climbing the Eiger by the least difficult route this summer.  This will be our most serious climb to date as we have only done Mount Rainier and Mount Hood guided, some winter and rock climbing seminars, and several of other 14,000ft US hikes/scrambles. We are doing this trip unguided.  Any thoughts on:
1) What is the least difficult route (e.g. Mittellegi Ridge, South Ridge or West Flank/Ridge)?  I know there are no easy routes on the Eiger.
2) Good resources for info?
Thanks and happy climbing.
