“In the winter of 1991, Jeff Lowe climbed a line straight up the North Face of the Eiger, alone and without bolts. Many said it was madness, most said it was visionary, everybody said it was an exceptional climb. Jeff named the route Metanoia, a Greek term that means a fundamental change of thinking, a new view of the world. The climb remained a mystery for 25 years. On December 30th, 2016. Thomas Huber, Stephan Siegrist, and Roger Schaeli were able to complete the second ascent of the incredible route.”
