This hiking route just beneath of the Eiger north face was opened in 1997.
You can see the details of the north face and how great and crazy the climbers are, who tried and succeeded or lost to challenge the wall.
This route is closed as long as any danger such as valance is alarmed. It is recommended to try in autumn.
