It took him only 2 h 47 min to tackle the 1700 m of vertical ice and rock, breaking his own record by 1 h 07 min! To set this record he had to climb without any safety lines, as they would slow him down.    The Eiger north face (German: Nordwand) is one of the six great north faces of the Alps, towering over 1,800 m (5,900 ft) above the valley of Grindelwald.   First climbed in 1938, at least sixty-four climbers have died in the attempt to climb it.
