    new film on the Eiger that might appeal to Alpine enthusiasts

        If you think you might want to see this movie and dont want to know how it ends dont click on the above.

        It looks good to me, love the "climbing the impossible mountain" story and its a peroid piece- when the Nazi were exploding, not literally, unfortunatley. :twisted:
