It's hard to imagine that any movie about mountain climbing will ever top this one. Critics have pointed out that the political and romantic subplots are weak, and that is true. But how much does it matter when the extensive climbing sequences, particularly those toward the end, leave one gasping with suspense.

Great Movie! My wife and I loved every minute. It will keep you on the edge of your chair. It's a true story ---and sad. Check it out!

Superb dramatization of a fateful climbing expedition on the then-unconquered Eiger. With Hitler's pre-war Germany as a backdrop, the film dramatizes the stakes involved in having two Austrians be the first to summit the mountain. Harrowing climbing scenes -- including the "Hindertoisser Traverse," will leave you gasping, they are so realistic.
