Photographer's Note

a hike in the bernese alps with the Swiss miss presenting the Eiger, at 3'970m by far not the highest mountain in the Swiss alps but one of the most difficult to climb. Seen here is the infamous north face of the Eiger, in itself around 1'650m high. First successfully climbed in 1936 over 52 alpinist have found their death in this vertical wall. It was thus named locally the murder wall (from its german name Nordwand to Mordwand).
