EigerWand North Face Ascent, March 1997 EigerWand North Face Ascent, March 1997 t was 5.30pm on Saturday, March 8th, 1997. Martin and I were standing on the train platform at Kleine Scheidegg. Dressed in shoes and jeans, with climbing gear sprawled out all around us, we looked out of place amongst the skiers. Above us stood the gigantic 6000 foot North face of the Eiger. We knew exactly where the 1938 route went, but hadn't decided how to reach its base. Neither of us have ever seen the face in real life before. We felt disorientated. We still couldn't believe the events of the previous few days. We arrived at the bottom of the face by whirlwind..., its name was Bruce Normand.
