Nothing in Switzerland is more impressive than the towering wall of the Eiger North Face. With the aid of ladders and fixed cables, even novices can get up close to this famous high alpine climb. The Via Ferrata “Rotstock” climbs the vertical wall on the west side of the face where you summit on the Rotstock Peak at 2,663 m (8737 ft).
