Matterhorn Climbing Notes

Roy Lachica from NORWAY writes:

I climbed Matterhorn with guide late July 2012 and I just wanted to share my story for those who want to climb the mountain. I have also recorded much of the climb and this video should be very helpful for others who are preparing for the ascent of Matterhorn.
