I was there in September of 1982 and loved the area it wasn't too crowded either. Did you climb the ridge?
What a coincidence. That's the exact month I was born. I wanted to climb the ridge but I didn't have time on this trip. I suspect that I will visit this area several more times in the future.
that's quite a number. I guess most were on the Hörnli Ridge?
I know that the 500 figure covers all the different routes, so I can't say with certainty, but it seems likely that most fatalities would have happened on the most popular route.
Good evening Ejnar, how are you? Hope very well! Another popular route getting to the summit of Matterhorn-Cervino on the italian side is the Leone Ridge, only a bit more difficult than the Hornli one. Unfortunately a high number of accidents is also occurred on that route, i think...
Have a nice evening.
Thanks, Silvia quite well, I hope you are too!
Yes I know about the Lion ridge, as the say in French and English, but I thought it was rather more difficult than the Hörnli route. I can imagine quite a number of accidents happening there.
Best wishes, Ejnar
