North Face of the Eiger & Orion – Sony RX1

On our journey to Grindelwald I read The White Spider, Heinrich Harrer’s tale of the first ascent of the Eiger.

The North Face now in front of me, I stood fascinated, re-tracing their steps; The Hinterstoisser Traverse; The Ramp, Death Bivouac, the Spider itself; an imposing and hostile environment, still a place for death or glory.

At night, from the safety of the hotel, the light spills from the station windows, and Orion stands guard.
