Unique project captures breathtaking 360 images of Eiger
A project to film and photograph the northern face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland has taken place with the Mammut #360 project.
The challenge was undertaken by the extreme climber Stephan Siegrist and the reigning speed record holder Daniel Arnold, who both climbed up the north face of the Eiger and captured a unique perspective of the mountain.
They carried with them a specially made camera that held six cameras together. The cube-shaped camera was then able produce still frames and videos every 30 seconds.
The camera effectively acts like Google Street View, capturing a range of angles that allows the online viewer to get an interactive 360 perspective of the mountain.
The aim of "Project 360" is to turn "climbing into a tangible experience", showing off how climbers can master climbs up ice fields and up rock passages.
