Is it snowing where you are? It certainly is at the bottom of the Eiger and Steve has an important message...

It's still too cold to climb, but that's not stopping Steve and the climbing crew exploring a near by glacier. What a team!
Something spectacular is happening
Nature can be cold, bold, bleak and beautiful...

'The Beast from the East’ is still ferociously freezing with temperatures as low as minus 34 degrees celsius! But Steve's not easily defeated and is looking at other routes to take on this epic challenge.

A 'Beast from the East’ is causing monstrous weather conditions and they are too unsafe for Steve to even consider climbing the Eiger. Lets hope there is a break in the weather soon.

On top of the world!
Steve's on top of the world... or at least The Stockhorn mountain! Exhausted, cold and in need of a cuppa, he's successfully taken on this epic training challenge.
Today's climb was hard enough with the ferocious winds and freezing temperatures. The north face of the Eiger, a bigger and more extreme climb isn't quite ready to be conquered... just yet!
Fingers crossed for good weather. Visit back daily to receive updates and follow Steve Backshall's journey.
Calling all tea makers
Steve half way up and would love a cup of tea!
Steve starts his climb up Stockhorn
Steve sends his good morning message having made it through the night sleeping in freezing temperatures. Come back this afternoon to see how Steve gets on climbing to the peak of Stockhorn.
Steve sends a huge thank you to cutecupcake09 and everyone else supporting him in the comments below.

Steve, Leo and the rest of the climbing crew bed down for the night after dinner. They'll need their energy for climbing Stockhorn tomorrow morning.
A night in the cold
Steve's made it to the base of Stockhorn where the climbing team have to bed down for the night in temperatures as low as -15 degree Celsius! Steve's only got a sleeping bag to protect him from the harsh outside environment. Let's hope he gets a good sleep and makes it through the night!
Send Steve warm wishes in the comments below and come back tomorrow to see Steve reach the summit of Stockhorn.
Can Steve make it to the base of Stockhorn?
Steve's undertaking a long, cold and dangerous two day trek to the base of Stockhorn - a smaller mountain. Tomorrow he will climb its north face in preparation and training before taking on the main beast - the Ogre (Eiger)!
Steve's wife Helen has returned to basecamp while the climbing team take on the north face of Stockhorn. She'll remain waiting at basecamp and update the team with weather reports and vital comms!
Do you have any questions for Helen? Let us know what they are in the comments below.

When Steve's not training for the biggest challenge of your life, what does he do?
Thursday 22nd February 07:30 - 17:00 GMT
Steve and his team have made it to the Stollenloch window in order to check out the snow conditions ahead of the big climb.
What's the Stollenloch window?
Believe it or not, there is a train that runs through the Eiger, which has enabled Steve to check out conditions at the half way point.

WOW! Climbing guide Lorenz is carrying out some pre-climb condition checks half way up the Eiger - what a view!
Massive thank you from Steve for supporting him in the messages below. Don't forget to tell us what your biggest challenge has been!?
Tuesday 20th February 07:30 - 17:00 GMT
Steve's started three days of intense training - starting with this ice wall!
Monday 19th February 17:00 GMT
Steve's just arrived in Switzerland and is making his way to the base of the mountain. He'll be starting on three tough days of extreme training to prepare him for climbing the Eiger.
As soon as the weather forecast is good Steve will put his training into practice and start to ascend the mile high vertical drop - named the North Face of the Eiger!
They've arrived in Switzerland!
Have you succeeded in a huge challenge?
