    The beckoning silence

    Louise Osmond (2007)

    Joe Simpson, whose battle for survival featured in 'Touching the Void', travels to the Eiger to tell the story of one of mountaineering's most epic tragedies. Toni Kurz was a brilliant mountaineer who in 1936 tried to be the first to conquer the north face of the Eiger. The climb started well, but disaster struck and Kurz's climbing colleagues were killed, leaving him alone and fighting for his life. The Beckoning Silence recounts Kurz's heroic battle for survival but it also forces Simpson to confront some fundamental questions of his own. Why continue climbing when you have come so close to oblivion?

    Eiger Nordwand

    Eiger Nordwand

    Gerhard Baur (2000)

    The two young Allgäu climbers Holger Wendel and Thomas Burger enter the infamous Eiger North Wall without informing anyone. A sudden fall in the weather in the middle of the wall puts them in an icy inferno: lightning, avalanches and cold. On a small heel, they wait nine days for the ever-closer death. Gerhard Baur, who accidentally discovers the tent of the two mountaineers left at the foot of the wall, sets a rescue operation in motion, as if by a miracle both survive. In his film, Baur reconstructs the real events.

    Eiger solo

    Leo Dickinson (1983)

    Welsh mountaineer Eric Jones' ultimate dream is to climb the notorious North Face of the Eiger alone. Filming Eric Jones on his solo climb was a great challenge to cameraman Leo Dickinson, who had to be lowered from a helicopter to Death Bivouac, high on the mountain to capture Eric's progress on film. Leo Dickinson's film showed the scale of the achievement by seeing Eric Jones in his tiny perspective, a mere speck, against the magnitude of the mountain. The film also traces the history of the North Face including the early pre-war attempts that gave the mountain its notorious reputation. The climax of the film recreates John Harlin's 5000ft fall during the historic winter ascent of the Eiger Direct in 1966.

    Die Eiger-Nordwand Tragödie 1936

    Die Eiger-Nordwand Tragödie 1936

    Gerhard Baur (1981)

    In 1936, in the Alps, only the Eiger North Wall still had to be climbed. Standing 1800 metres high, it was certainly the highest but also the most dangerous and difficult of the big inviolate walls. In 1935, two Bavarian alpinists from Munich lost their lives trying to reach the top. In 1936, two German soldiers, Toni Kurz and Andreas Interstoisser, made an attempt despite their commander's order not to do so. The attempt turned into a tragedy in which, not only the two Germans lost their lives, but also two Austrian companions who had joined them by chance.
