We´ve already reported that Sir Ranulph Fiennes is planning to climb the North Face of the Eiger this month. Well, his attempt is well under way. Climbing with Kenton Cool and Ian Parnell the three are making good progress and hope to summit some time on Saturday – a good job too as Nick Bullock, who has just come down having completed the route says that the weather is due to take a significant turn for the worse on Sunday. Nick climbed the 1938 route with Andy Houseman and declared the first ascencionists as ´well ´ard´. Check out Ran´s Blog which makes for surprisingly good reading. Ran is hoping to raise 1.5 million pounds for Cancer Research through his ascent.
