Eiger summit success

Here is Nick standing on the summit of the Eiger, having ascended via the Mittileggi route, which follows the top left ridge of the North Face. Nick was guided by François who has previously led him up the Matterhorn in winter! On the Eiger the pair enjoyed perfect weather, and made a quick ascent, descending to the Monchsjoch hut on the far side for the night, before completing a traverse of the Monch the next day. That was just the Monday and Tuesday of the week! Their key ascents had to be pulled forward as the weather was unsettled at the end of last week.
