HB/VS-006 Matterhorn - No activation yet. See why!


#1

I understand this is probably off topic, but I could not resist sharing this link: Matterhorn Climbing Video - Walking on the Razor’s Edge

Matterhorn = Mont Cervin = Monte Cervino

“It is estimated that over 500 alpinists have died on the Matterhorn since the first climb in 1865, making it one of the deadliest peaks in the Alps”

Wow! very impressive and scary!
Thanks for posting it here.
I assure you I won’t be the first activator of such summit, not even the second, third, fourth… :wink:

It’s been in my mind for some time…
It deserves more points :wink:


#4

No it doesn’t.

Just for clarity, points are not awarded because a summit is difficult to climb, or dangerous.


#5

Surely … I added a smile. Sorry if I’m not clear
I look at this mountain by mountaineer, but also I hope to bring with me my 817.


#6

If you activate it Yubi, you will have more than points, you will have the admiration and respect of SOTA activators and chasers.


#7

And an enormous pile-up!:grinning:


#8

There are Summits that do not make you because of the points. Otherwise I would drive into the DM and would drive with the car 5 pcs 10-point Summits. But I do not know whether the experience is the same high? As if you climb up the Hörnlihütte, get up early in the morning to take on a perennial climbing over thousands of meters in the ice and rock, which have already killed more than 500 people. :slight_smile: Do you come with me?

Richard HB9DFL was up there in 2016. He is a member of our local club but unfortunately he’s not interested in SOTA. Here is Richard’s report (in German).
