The Eiger, Grindelwald, Switzerland

 

The Eiger Mountain in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Sculptural Watercolour® in a box frame 60 x 80 x 5 cm

We probably all have in mind a particular view of the Eiger from the North or North-West.  So its shape from the East may be a surprise, as from here on the Mitteleggi Ridge we see that it is a piece of the Earth's crust fractured and tilted skywards.

The steep slope on the right of the picture is the North-East Face, with the even steeper and famous North Face just out of view.

The Eiger has a most unusual feature: a railway that has a curving tunnel through the mountain, with a station on the right-hand north side, then one on the left-hand south side. Should you ever take the train to what is called 'The Top of Europe' you should take a break at the south-side station and absorb the view of glaciers tumbling into the 'Ice Lake'.
