    Joe Simpson, whose battle for survival featured in "Touching the Void", travels to the Eiger to tell the story of one of mountaineering's most epic tragedies. Toni Kurtz was a brilliant mountaineer who in 1936 tried to be the first to conquer the Eiger. The climb started well, but disaster struck and Kurtz's climbing colleagues were killed, leaving him alone and fighting for his life. "The Beckoning Silence" recounts Kurtz's heroic battle for survival but it also forces Simpson to confront some fundamental questions of his own. Why continue climbing when you have come so close to oblivion?

    The North Face of the Eiger towers malevolently over the villages of the Bernese Oberland. The surrounding peaks are softer, more clad with snow and their names reflect their more friendly nature - the Monch the Jungfrau. But even the unemotional Swiss aren't impervious to the personality of the Eiger - the Ogre. And tourists are drawn by the smell of death which hangs like its personal mantle of clouds around the North Face.
