Eiger: Roger Schaeli Completes New Route to Famous North Face
40-year-old Swiss alpinist Roger Schaeli has completed a new route up the North Face of the Eiger. Schaeli established Airplane Mode ground-up in the summers 2017 and 2018, with Dimitri Vogt, Bernd Rathmayr and Mayan Smith-Gobat.
Schaeli told planetmountain.com "the route climbs a line to the right of Deep Blue Sea along the eye-catching sun and shadow arête on the Geneva Pillar. Straight thought the huge bulge, where the climbing is absolutely awesome."
