Top Grand Mountains In The World
Mount Eiger, Switzerland
Mount Eiger is rather imposing to look at, but also very stunning. Its rock face is really challenging to scale, and a lot of climbers have perished in their attempt. It was first climbed from its north side in 1938 by Anderl Heckmar.
Many tours go to Denali each year, featuring fantastic views of the mountain, which towers 20,320 feet above the landscape. Just taking a look at photos of Denali, you might feel dwarfed and humbled. But imagine how you would feel in its presence, standing near the base and looking up toward the sky.
The lines of its sediment are very pronounced, and have an orderly, sculptured appearance. The slope of the base is really smooth and even, creating a symmetrical appearance.
