Austrian climber Heinrich Harrer was a member of the team of four that first got to the top of the notorious Eiger North Face on July 24, 1938 (shown here). The German term for the north face is Nordwand, or "north wall," and the climbers who have gone to their graves trying to climb it have given it the nickname Mordwand, or "murder(ous) wall."
