North Face (Nordwand) Based on the true story of Toni Kurz, Andreas Hinterstoisser, Edi Rainer and Willy Angerer. North Face is a suspenseful adventure film about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps. Set in 1936, as Nazi propaganda urges the nation's Alpinists to conquer the unclimbed north face of the Swiss massif - the Eiger - two reluctant German climbers begin their daring ascent. Read about it in the link. So sad!!

Wingsuit Fly off the Eiger  Switzerland  "Eiger" translates to "ogre" in German, which seems a fitting moniker for the 13,000-foot beast of limestone, gneiss, shale, and ice that towers over the resort town of Grindelwald in the Swiss Alps. Its unpredictable weather, loose rock, and steep slopes have claimed the lives of more than 60 climbers, and yet its iconic 5,905-foot  north face still proves irresistible. Now a new set of adventurers, wingsuit fliers, are launching off it. CRAZY.

Eiger 2.- Toni Kurz: “Ich kann nicht mehr“ (No puedo más) Cuando el vigilante del ferrocarril sale por la boca del túnel por segunda vez, escucha por boca del joven Toni Kurz que los 4 escaladores han sufrido un accidente, y que el propio Kurz se encuentra bloqueado, colgado de la cuerda sobre el vacío de la pared. No pierde tiempo y da aviso a Grindelwald en donde se encuentra la base de los guías de montaña. El mal tiempo los tenía recluidos en el pueblo.
