The final few steps to the summit of the Eiger yesterday.

A wild day out with the weather coming and going, and fresh snow on the route making it much more delicate than normal.

Tough conditions traversing the Eiger today after overnight snow.

We had an extra coffee, took our time and pretended it was Scotland. Slab climbing in crampons is overrated.

Massive kudos to @gurudave420 who took everything in his stride to realise a long held ambition. 💪

Nine hours hut to hut. Currently on the train back through the mountain. Time for 🍺

Fun granite climbing on the Pyramid du Tacul today. The early start was tough after yesterday’s climb, but the sun was soon on us and we were in front of the other teams.

So concludes an action packed four days with @tdmullen @aoifestrahan & @gurudave420 with @claphamski guiding too. A varied few climbs, with some proper top 50 classics ticked.

I could do with a lie in, but Dave says we should go to the Eiger tomorrow.
