Eiger Solo is a documentary of the first British solo ascent of the Eiger North Face. Welsh mountaineer Eric Jones’ ultimate dream was to climb the notorious North Face of the Eiger, alone. Filming Eric Jones on his solo climb was almost as great a challenge to cameraman and filmmaker Leo Dickinson, who had to be lowered from a helicopter to Death Bivouac, high on the mountain to capture Eric’s progress on film. This film also contains rare interviews with Heinrich Harrer, Anderl Heckmair, Don Whillans and Adolf Rubi. “Eiger Solo” is probably the best of its genre on the subject and thoroughly deserves to be regarded as a masterpiece of a mountaineering film, it will thrill and inspire both serious climbers and armchair mountaineers alike.
