TO CELEBRATE 150 YEARS since the first ascent of the Matterhorn, Mammut Key Visual created this interesting behind-the-scenes film depicting the process it took to light up this iconic mountain. The lights along the Hoernli ridge represent the original trail undertaken by Edward Whymper, Lord Francis Douglas, Charles Hudson, Douglas Hadow, Michel Croz, and their two Zermatt guides. I can’t believe that the original climbers got through it without any modern-day equipment. The team at Mammut did an awesome job to recognize this amazing feat, and the results are simply stunning. The 250th anniversary commemoration is sure to be something extraordinary.
