Big wall rock climber Katie Lambert usually only goes on a hike to get to the base of a wall or get to an objective–but not this time. This time, she joined fellow Eddie Bauer guide Caroline George in her home country of Switzerland to go on one of the most stunning and picturesque hikes in the world. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll find some walls to traverse along the way.

Alpine Climbing Guide (IFMGA)
For more than a decade, Caroline George has lived for the vertical dimension, tackling some of the hardest ice and mixed routes. Raised by climbing parents, George followed in their footsteps by sharpening her skills in the Swiss Alps, then earned her guiding certs in the male-dominated ranks in a profession steeped in alpine tradition. A true working guide, she has also participated in an impressive tick list of climbing expeditions that have taken her from Mt. Vinson, Antarctica, to the deeply carved fjords of Norway.
