  • It is a north wall, but not only is it basically a shadow because it is the north side, but because it is easy to generate clouds from its unique shape, clouds are roughly clouded.

  • I waited at the height near the hotel from about 5 a.m. to see Eiger's morning glow. It was possible to see a beautiful morning glow when the morning sun began to hit the top of The Eiger at about six o'clock in the morning. It's July, but don't forget to wear it in the cold because it's cold outside early in the morning.
