Rising to 3976 metres, the Eiger dominates the skyline above Grindelwald, and is arguably the most iconic mountain in the Alps. On 11 August 1858, Irishman Charles Barrington along with two Grindelwald guides, Christian Almer and Peter Bohren, made the first recorded ascent via the West Face & West Ridge route.
