Day 1: At the base of the north face 
We caught  up with Michael on Friday night in Grinderwalt, we enjoy some dark chocolate by a river next to the campground and hoped that the new day would make the threatening clouds go away. 
Saturday morning was a little slow... we had few errands to run. We cheated a little a took a mountain train from Grinderwalt up to Alpiglen. We hiked pretty much all day under the Eiger's northface. Most of the hike was pretty comfortable: A sunny day, friends and a great nap after lunch. The last part of the day got harder as the downhill to the Lautterbrunner valley was steep and pretty long. The valley was too civilized for wild camping so we  had to settle for another $50 campground.
