MATTERHORN OBSESSION

Delve into the Matterhorn-obsessed world of alpinist, Hervé Barmasse.

As probably the man who knows the Matterhorn best, having made the most first ascents on it, he once said: “like a fairytale, the mountain belonged to me even before my birth.” His father, Marco Barmasse, was leaving for a first winter ascent of the west face of the Matterhorn, when his mother was giving birth to him. Since then, the Matterhorn has become Barmasse’s playground. Not even his father’s attempts to steer him away from dangers and risks posed by the mountains could keep him away.

Read our interview with Hervé, where he goes further into his thoughts about this magestic mountain and shares photos from one of his latest expeditions to the summit.
