Matterhorn

Last climb of the season and not the least, Dimitri wants to do the Matterhorn. After a snowfall and a few days of beautiful weather, we left for the Ridge of the Lion hoping to find dry conditions. The 1800m of unevenness to the Carrel refuge are not a formality, but we are alone and we enjoy the siesta at the refuge. The departure at 4am in the night is not so unpleasant, it is not really cold. 8am here we are at the summit without having removed the crampons. At noon, we are back at the refuge, yet it is the descent the problem with all this snow, the anchorages are difficult to find. Stay longer than the long long descent to Cervinia.
