The mighty Matterhorn (14692 ft / 4478m, E-Face) at dawn. Photo taken at +/-4000m while descending along the Grenzglacier from the Capanna Margherita (4557m) to the Monte Rosa Hut. I remember thinking about the fact that I slept at an higher altitude that night than the summit of Matterhorn is. Awesome.
The Hornligrat is the ridge to the right, the Lionsgrat/ Cresta del Leone the one to the left. The Furggengrat is facing towards the camera
