Matterhorn comparison

Some have compared Mount Marvine's profile to the much grander Matterhorn. Although I wouldn't venture this comparison, the forces of nature that contributed to the Blade, also helped craft Monte Cervino and its neighbors.

If you are curious, the mountain does look somewhat like the Matterhorn, but only when viewed from the North Ridge. From all other sides, it bears no resemblance to the Matterhorn and has a different appearance.

Re: Matterhorn comparison

I've seen the north side while hiking near Porcupine Spring and up by Sheep Valley Reservoir. Wish I had some photos but I was only 11 years old at the time. It seems like you've been everywhere in Utah. That's awesome. Congratulations on Chimbo too.

I have a picture I took from Mount Terrill and it does somewhat look like the Matterhorn from this angle. I will post it

Now paved

The road from 25 to the jeep trail is now paved. This was definitely a hard hike, especially in the rain. The debris/boulder field reminded me of King's peak and there is a pretty good little section of climbing to get to the summit. Maybe it was just my poor route finding abilities.
