Smoking Matterhorn

"Das Hörnli raucht!" The Matterhorn is smoking. Typical cloud formations at Matterhorn (4.474m). In front the Hörnli-ridge. Right is North-face.. Picture taken from near Zermatt in Sept05. Compare this one (early morning) and this one (one year later - more snow covered and less humidity).

It is really funny. The hole sky is blue and only the Matterhorn is smoking. I think it´s concered with the wind coming from Italy up to the summit.

Not yet, And I don´t really know if I want. For finding the right line and avoiding traffic on the ridge, you should take a guide. The guiding-fee is very high and the summit is overcrowed, the guides are impatient and it is still only a well looking pyramid made of rubble. I will climb it, but when I don´t know. Maybe via Lion-ridge. But to see it in the morning touched by the first rays of the sun is stunning.
