The Eiger

The Eiger (3,970m) is a mountain in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. It is the eastern most peak of a ridge crest that extends across the Mönch to the Jungfrau at 4,158m. The northern side of the mountain rises about 3,000m above Grindelwald and other inhabited valleys of the Bernese Oberland, and the southern side faces the deeply glaciated region of the Jungfrau-Aletsch, covered by some of the largest glaciers in the Alps.
