I find it extremely interesting that Harrer chooses to describe the North Face of the Eiger as "another world."This description ties in very well to the way that we have been debating the place of morality on the mountain. If this is another world, then there is another type of morality, and the rules of civilization that must be followed at sea level do not apply. Harrer writes as if the Eiger is not part of the Earth:
"We had learned on the North Face of the Eiger that men are good and the earth on which we were born is good. And now that the earth was welcoming us home..." (pg 134)
Harrer treats the Eiger as if it is some heavenly or otherworldly place. He places a high status upon this mountain and speaks of it in a very spiritual way. This spirituality has been a somewhat common theme in many of the other works we have read, especially Touching My Father's Soul.
