Climbing the Matterhorn

Conditions in the Alps this summer have been very fickle (varying between very dry and very snowy) – ie not ideal for making big ascents – so major congrats to Rob for managing to Climb the Matterhorn today – and as always, big thanks to Chris Ensoll for some superb guiding  beer o’clock tonight…

Currently, the lower half of the mountain is dry, with a good snow covering on the upper slopes of the ‘roof’ – ie good climbing conditions – we’ll see how things pan out for the rest of the season.
