The Matterhorn is a pyramidal-shaped colossus, standing at a skyline-dominating elevation of 4478 metres (14,690 feet tall) which makes it the sixth highest mountain in the Alps and in Europe.
The Matterhorn is a technical alpine rock, snow, and ice climb. This climb requires climbers to have previous experience rock climbing (5.7 grade) in boots and being comfortable climbing on steep firm snow and ice. Along with the technical level, summit day on the Matterhorn is extremely physical, requiring climbers to be in excellent physical condition.
Matterhorn can be climbed from both the Italian and Swiss sides, depending on the route you choose.
The normal route from the Swiss side is through the Hörnli ridge (Hörnligrat), Matterhorn’s northeast ridge. From the Italian side, the normal route is via the Lion’s ridge (Liongrat or Cresta del Leone), Matterhorn’s southwest ridge.
Climbing the Matterhorn is an experience you will never forget.
