Towering over 5000 feet above you on the Eiger Trail, the north face of the Eiger is one of the world's most challenging and deadly rock faces. I'm an armchair climber, I've read several books on climbing the Eiger and viewed Clint Eastwood's "The Eiger Sanction," based on an excellent book by Trevanian. You need binoculars to pick out the climbers on the route. The rock face is so vast and you lose all sense of perspective until you find the tiny specks climbing it.
