The Eiger, "the last problem of the Alps". With us, you can make your lifelong alpine dream reality. Eiger compact or Eiger intense – with a tailor-made preparation program we guide you through the wall of all walls.

The powerful and notorious Eiger north face is still considered the wall of all walls, even for more than seven decades after its first ascent. It represents the goal of every ambitious alpinist.

In our tailored preparation program, we first determine the status quo in order to then be able to specifically target any shortcomings. 
The requirements for a successful ascent of the Eiger north face are broad and require strong stamina, confident climbing in the upper 5th grade, solid crampon technique in the combined terrain and fast rope and belay management. In recent years, we encountered the best conditions from February to April.

After more than 10 years of experience in climbing such walls we are aware that such a major undertaking requires a certain amount of preparation and trust. Therefore we offer you two versions that can be varied and adapted depending on ability.

Eiger compact: 
You are an ambitious, experienced alpinist who has already independently taken part in large tours, but you currently lack a partner or simply wish to minimize the risk? Then this offer is exactly right for you. 
We will agree upon either 3 days in Chamonix or in the Bernese Oberland. The focus on the first day is on a medium combined tour to get to know each other. On the 2nd and 3rd day we climb a long classic route with higher overall requirements. If we then realize that everything is working out well, we can set a time period for the Eiger north face.

Eiger intensive: 
You are a climber in good condition and you’ve always wanted to fulfill the dream of the Eiger north face? Then you are well served by this program. Over a period of 10 weekends we will help prepare you as best as we can according to your individual requirements. We will touch upon all varieties of mountaineering and specifically respond to existing challenges. The tours include rock climbing, ice climbing and combined climbing, whereby we will steadily increase the level without overdoing it. After getting to know each other on the first weekend, we will determine the further tour schedule together. After completing the preparation stage, we will wait for the perfect conditions and ascend the route together.

See above. The exact schedule and dates will be agreed upon individually.

General
Despite modern equipment, tactics and technology, an ascent of the Eiger north face is still an enormous challenge. In addition to technical and fitness requirements, the high altitude and cold weather conditions need to be considered as well. 
Weather conditions and those on the mountain can lead to program or route changes. 
Participation lies in your own individual responsibility. Furtenbach Adventures assumes no liability for accidents, damages or loss of materials.

This package in general is not suitable for persons with reduced mobility.

Difficulty / Technique
The tours take place under the leadership of the mountain guide. At our first meeting, the aptness of the participants will be determined during a tour and a corresponding program will be created for the following preparation tours in order for participants to advance to a higher level.

Physical fitness
A decisive success factor is being in very good physical shape. You are responsible for carrying your own personal equipment on the mountain.

Equipment
Following your booking we will send you a detailed equipment list. We will be happy to advise you personally during the selection and purchase of required equipment. With years of expedition experience, we know what has proved its worth and what not.
