Matterhorn in Excellent Condition

Rich and I have just finished an entertaining fortnights climbing and skills training with Matt and John, by climbing the Matterhorn on Thursday.  Current conditions on the Hornli Ridge are excellent at the moment, with the whole route being dry to right above the shoulder and the fixed ropes.  We only used crampons for the final summit slope – which has snow layed on ice currently – so quite serious and delicate.
