How about finding a lost rucksack after 20 years?

There are a quite a few outdoor videos that we love, but we haven’t seen any that beat this reunion of Jeff Lowe’s pack by Josh Wharton after a small 20 years lost on the north face of the Eiger!

Jeff Lowe’s Pack Retrieved from Eiger North Face from Jeff Lowe on Vimeo.

Jeff abandoned his backpack in 1991 when couldn’t find any anchors at the end of the rope. He left his pack behind as he went rope free on the last 50 feet to the summit ridge where he was plucked off the mountain by a helicopter. A couple of hours later one hell of a storm descended on the Eiger so he was one seriously lucky man!

Unbelievable to think he actually got it back after all these years. Mental.
