Ships from and sold by lexingtonbooks. When I began reading this book, I thought it was just going to be dates and names of climbers. Well, it is that, but it is told so well and with extensive background information that instead of being a slog, it was a fascinating journey of the history of climbing the north face of the Eiger.

Arthur Roth does an excellent job detailing the history of climbing the Eiger North Face. Having lived in Switzerland, I visited the Eiger on several occasions and would marvel at that massive Wall before me. The book is an excellent narrative regarding the various climbs over the years and is in part a tribute to the many climbers who have lost their lives in those attempts. A "must read" for anyone hiking or climbing in Europe.

Although this book wasn't quite what I expected, Eiger: Wall of Death by Arthur Roth was an absolutely fascinating read. It was written more like a history or reference book about the north-face climb (Nordwand) of the Eiger mountain in the Swiss Alps rather than some fictional story. And I'm glad I did because this one was really great Although this book wasn't quite what I expected, Eiger: Wall of Death by Arthur Roth was an absolutely fascinating read.

When I began reading this book, I thought it was just going to be dates and names of climbers. Well, it is that, but it is told so well and with extensive background information that instead of being a slog, it was a fascinating journey of the history of climbing the north face of the Eiger.

I picked up this book when I was in traveling in the area. I am always captivated by stories of courage sometimes crazy courage. Climbing the Eiger to me was more exciting that the Everest, etc. tales that I have read. Probably because I could stand at its base and look up at the wall. And because of the train through the Jungfrau... so spectacular. It is worth a trip to Grindelwald staying at Kleine Scheidegg and take the book!

Straight to the stories that make the Eiger a must climb, at least on the West flank or Mittilieggi Rdge.
Worth finding, better than most of the other books on Eiger because it does not follow the exploits on any one group, so it flows quickly and reads well.

One of my favorite books ever, or any genre. I can't imagine why it's not in publication. Many of the characters in this book went on to become icons of mountaineering history, and you will come across them on other stories about the sport's pioneering era.

This is a consistently interesting history of climbing on the Eiger's North Wall from the late 19th century to the late '70s. I'm not sure I've read a better narrative on mountain climbing, and I can't imagine a better book about the Eiger (though I've never read Harrer's THE WHITE SPIDER). Roth's account is well written, fair minded, vivid, sometimes harrowing, and always informative. Though I'll probably never have the money to see the Eiger firsthand (and I have neither the nerve nor experience to even think about climbing it), Roth provides us poor armchair alpinists with the best picture of the famous mountain that we can hope for. It's a shame that the book isn't more readily available. And why is it only in large print? This makes no sense to me. The photos are good, especially the ones that indicate the various routes, landmarks, and places where the unfortunates died. I had a hard time putting this book down. This is an absolute must for anyone interested in mountains and/or mountaineering, and I'd give it 4 1/2 stars if I could.

I found this book in the "english" section of a bookstore in Grindlewald and it was my introduction to the facinating world of mountaineering through literature. I have read many similir books since and nothing compares to this series of harrowing tales that progresses from the earliest climbs, through the first successful climb in the 30's and on to the stories of the worlds finest climbers and their attempts on this infamous wall. I was afraid to sleep after reading the Kurtz chapter it was so utterly depressing.
