Ascent Trip Report

Link to 'Living by Luck in the Alps' trip report

In the late summer of 1994, my buddy, Pete and I did a week-long, express tour of the French & Swiss Alps with a goal of summitting on what we considered the big three: Mont Blanc, The Matterhorn, and The Eiger. We were experienced rock climbers but had little mountaineering experience. But with a blood chemistry high in testosterone and adrenaline, and imbued with the full spirit of adventure, we were determined to make it happen.
