Grand Dynamics International President Tim Walther and internationally heralded mountaineer and speaker Stephen Koch will attempt to climb the North Face of the Eiger in April 2012.
The Eiger (3, 970 m (13,025 ft)) is a mountain in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. The north face, 1,800 m (5,900 ft) German: Nordwand, “north wall”, was first climbed in 1938 by an Austrian-German expedition and is one of the six great north faces of the Alps. Since 1935, at least sixty-four climbers have died attempting the north face, earning it the German nickname Mordwand, literally “murder(ous) wall.” The “North Face” movie released in 2010 popularized this important mountaineering challenge.

Koch and Walther will attempt the North face some time between April 13 and 22, 2012 and will have “spot” technology where people interested can follow along the ascent remotely. Additional details and links to follow.
