If the summit of the Eiger was being held together by ice, then it would have broken sooner or later anyway. So I don't think it's a big deal (though maybe a general loss of snow and ice in the Alps is).

By the way, a big chunk fell off the summit of Mt Cook in New Zealand in 1991, reducing the height by 20 m.

I don't recall anyone suggesting that global warming was involved, though that doesn't mean it wasn't.
