Documentary about the North Face of the Eiger, and the men who have climbed, or tried to climb it. The story of men against the Eiger told by Christopher Brasher. Thirty-three young men have died on the North Face of the Eiger-the most dangerous mountain wall in the Alps. Yet still, men venture into this cold, white, vertical hell: a place which has been the stage for human drama, for heroism, for cowardice, for ultimate endurance -even for alleged murder. This programme tells the story of the men who have found, in this 6,000-foot-high face, the ultimate challenge to their skill and courage.
