I watched a movie, I think at the Banff traveling film festival, about a couple of Swiss climbers who climbed the Eiger in the early 00s, in the style of the FA from the 1930s.  They gathered up some old gear, recreated other stuff, and went for it.

here's a clip, the full movie I saw was probably 30 mins or more.
