A guidebook to just one route, but what a route! The infamous 1938 Heckmair Route on the Eiger's North Face is a climb wreathed in intimidation, tragedy and history, but surprisingly accessible to the modern alpinist. This handy pocket guide provides all the information you need to tackle this legendary climb with comprehensive, easy-to-follow topos and concise route-finding advice. Plus, up-to-date information about when to climb, equipment, bivouac sites, and other strategies for a successful ascent of the much-coveted North Face of the Eiger.

This small booklet is a work of art as much as a guidebook and we suspect will be enjoyed as much by armchair mountaineers as by those seeking to collect this big tick.

  • Outstanding route topos with additional detailed topos for crux and difficult-to-navigate areas.
  • Route descriptions, including suggested belay stances and bivouac info.
  • Advice on climbing strategy, route finding, and gear.
  • Information, drawings, and maps for the approach and descent.
  • Topos and route descriptions are printed on tear-resistant and waterproof paper, and are designed to be cut out and carried on the climb!
By Rick Kollath, an American illustrator/graphic designer and climber who climbed the North Face of the Eiger aged almost 60.
