Brief Directions

I flew into Zurich then took the train - so easy to travel by train in the EU - to Grindelwald with a few stops on the way.

Description

The Eiger-Nordwand, aptly nicknamed Mordwand in German, is one of the most challenging and dangerous ascents in mountain climbing. Over 60 people have died trying to climb this daunting face.
The view in the photo is from Grindelwald on a dark and stormy-looking morning which eventually cleared up to an amazingly beautiful sunny day. A break in the clouds provided the perfect opportunity for a little "magic light" in this shot.
