Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Joe Simpson's book about the Hinterstoisser/Kurz ascent of the Eiger... Just finished on C4. Wonderful adaptation of his book, and the description in Heinrich Harrer's "The White Spider".

    Just incredible what they came so close to achieving, with hemp ropes, basic pitons and crampons.

    I'd challenge most people not to read/watch Toni Kurz's last few minutes and not be filled with emotion...
