We felt warm in the evening sun, and those minutes before the sun set were some of the most peaceful I'd ever experienced on a mountain.
But the Eiger is not renowned for its rock quality and I had no desire to test it.

According to a Microsoft spokesperson, Eiger is in the very early stages of development and testing at this time, and that it is too early to discuss the features to be found in the software or a possible release date or pricing expectation.
Officials believe Eiger, which they refer to not as a thin client or smart client (define) but rather as a "mid-client," is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership of the company's desktop infrastructure — companies that might not have the resources to update to the latest hardware and operating systems.
"Eiger will be designed to get the most out of legacy hardware without going beyond the capabilities of that hardware," the spokesperson said in the e-mail.

Tue May 09, 2006 7:08 AM The Eiger is a nice atv I almost bought one I know several people who have them and they take a beating.
Thu May 11, 2006 10:55 PM I have two Eigers, had a little idle issue/coldbloodedness with mine a couple months ago, but that was easily fixed by the dealer.
Looked at the Bruin, but the Eiger is just so much more machine for the money when you get down to it (u get dual range subtrans, speedo, bigger engine, more comfortable seat, and the heavier weight makes it ride smoother IMO).

Particularly enjoyable are the articles on the North face of the Eiger, the author's own journey to solo climb Alaska's Devil's Thumb at age 23 and a chapter on the Burgesses -- two mountaineering hobos who combine moxie with single mindedness as they climb the world's tallest peaks.
