EIGER MOUNTAIN, Switzerland (NBC/RTV) — Two climbers are taking on the north face of Switzerland’s Eiger Mountain for a unique photo project. Extreme climber Stephan Siegrist and the reigning speed record-holder Daniel Arnold, climbed up the north face of the Eiger and captured a unique perspective of the mountain.

They used a specially designed cube to hold six cameras together. The cubed-shaped camera produced still frames and videos every 30 seconds. The camera showcased a range of angles on the mountain, giving viewers an interactive 360-degree perspective of the Alps.

Siegrist’s and Arnold’s photos can be seen online.
