DiGiulian and Traversi are setting their sights on the 20-pitch Magic Mushroom (7c+ 5.13a), also on the Eiger’s North Face. This route appears to be less affected by the snow and rain.

Last night, August 26, DiGiulian and Traversi scrambled the west flank of the Eiger to the summit and bivied. They rapped the face today to suss out conditions. Magic Mushroom looked dry enough and they began the climb as soon as they reached the base.

If all goes well, the two should top out on the iconic Stone Mushroom formation on Friday night or Saturday morning.

Stay tuned for updates.
