This book details Heinrich Harrer's participation in the first successful ascent of the North Face of the Eiger
(aka the Eiger Nordwand) in the
Alps. Harrer goes far beyond simply recounting the story of their 3-day ascent
and describes the earlier unsuccessful and often fatal efforts that helped
pave the way for their ultimate ascent and several of the subsequent
successful and tragic ascents as well. Although written in a somewhat dispassionate manner
that may be due to the translation from original German, this book is a comprehensive
description of the story behind the climbs of the Eiger.
