Matterhorn Matt!

Here is a photo of Matt and Remi on the summit of the Matterhorn, taken on Tuesday, after their ascent via the Hornli Arete. The route conditions were perfect, and they took the perfect weather window, before the storms of yesterday blanketed the mountain in snow. After an easier day to recover (and a couple of beers), Matt and Remi, with two other Icicle teams, have headed over to the Mittelleggi hut on the Eiger to attempt the ridge to the summit early tomorrow morning. Good luck to you all. Routes of this nature always have to be guided on a 1:1 ratio for safety and to be able to efficiently over steep ground.
