Eiger Summit Log (#1902)

We stepped out on the glacier from the railway station Eismeer in rainy weather and arrived at the Mittellegi hut after travelling on wet and slippery rock. Coming morning the weather was good and we set out on the icy Mittellegi ridge. We had some problems at the stiff and frozen fixed ropes but were able to reached the summit at ten. Going down the long west flank makes you feel you have knees. This climb is a 'Once in a lifetime' experience! (August 1, 1996 - being the day of my fiftieth birthday).
