The Eiger Challenge

Jerry Gore takes us on a 25 minute bumble up the 1938 route on the North Face of the Eiger.  After his two very different experiences on this iconic route, Jerry gives us his take on how to prepare and train for a successful ascent.

Jerry’s light hearted glimpse at the world of uphill alpinism will be followed by a Q&A session.

If you would like to join this lecture  please check your emails again on Monday 13 April, when a link will be sent out.  The link will also be available on the Alpine Club Facebook Member Area
