Climb Mount Eiger over 2 days via the Mittellegi Ridge
The Eiger is one of Europe's most famous mountains, located in the stunning region of the Bernese Oberland.
The Mittellegi is the east ridge leading from Ostegg at 2709m to the summit and is the longest ridge on the Eiger, first climbed in 1921.
Spectacular views await you from the Mittellegi Ridge, with the lush green valley of Grindelwald in one direction and the famous north face of the Eiger in the other. Much of the ascent is along the crest of the ridge over a mix of limestone, snow and ice.
On this trip you will spend one night in the Mittellegi hut, a remote mountain refuge perched up high amongst the formidable peaks of the Bernese Oberland.
Climbing the Eiger via the Mittellegi ridge is a long, strenuous but extremely rewarding ascent that requires a reasonable level of mountaineering experience. This course is designed for those who have already completed our Matterhorn course, Alpine Climbing course or a private preparation course and wish to add the Eiger summit as a bonus to their week.
The ascent is done over 2 days, with one night in the Mittellegihütte.
The ratio is 1 client to 1 guide and this big climb is organised on demand, ensuring a completely personal experience.
The Eiger season usually starts mid-July and ends mid-September. However, the conditions can occasionally be good at the beginning of July. The best approach is to contact us and we will check the conditions for you.
This course is designed for those who recently completed one of our following courses:
• Alpine Climbing Course
• Matterhorn 6 Day Course
• Rock Climbing Granite Course
• Private Eiger Specific Preparation Course
You have to be acclimatised prior to this 2 day ascent, spending some time climbing in the Alps and practising your mountaineering skills is the perfect preparation.
