On the 30th December 2016 pro-climbers and 5.10 athlete Thomas Huber, along with climber partners Stephan Siegrist and Roger Schaeli were able to repeat Metanoia on the north face of the Eiger in Switzerland. This ascent was made 25 years after Lowe's remarkable solo ascent. In the winter of 1991 Jeff Lowe climbed a line straigh up the North Face of the Eiger. Alone and without bolts. Many said it was madness, most said it was visionary, everybody said it was an exceptional climb. Jeff named the route „Metanoia,“ a Greek term and means as much as fundamental change of thinking, a new view of the world.
