jameslomax 27 Aug, 2018 AltLd [2/2] This was the best summit of my life. We had the whole ridge to just the four of us, and spectacular clear views for miles in all directions. The atmosphere here was incredible, with powerful winds and cloud forming over the south face. We descended via the hornli ridge, a very slow process with my injured shoulder. When we got to the penultimate section of downclimbing Ed and Josh lead us the wrong way down a loose couloir of death. As we descended and rained rocks down below we realised that we were probably going the wrong way (a guide shouted down to us), but somewhat a little late for Osa, a strange iranian man who decided that the shower of rockfall looked inviting and so climbed up directly underneath us. Trying and failing not to dislodge rocks onto his head he motions to wait and moves himself out of the way onto a rocky platform, where he had a fag and waited for my arrival. Upon reaching him we immediately ran into issues as he spoke almost no English and I speak no Iranian, but he managed to communicate that he wanted us to lower him out of the death couloir. Thankfully he didn't understand what "fucking idiot" meant. Eventually, once Richard and I had decided we would ascend out of the couloir to find the correct descent path, I managed to convey that we would take Osa up and out of the couloir. Osa had other ideas however, insisting that we could lower him off the "fixed" anchor (a rusty piton hammered into the choss). I told him to fuck off which again he didn't understand, then I handed him the end of the rope to tie-in to. Richard brought me up on the middle, and then a somewhat reluctant Osa on the end, after which we had trouble convincing him that he would have to move across and take a seat. Once all three of us are securely out of the chossy death couloir we had to convince Osa to untie and walk down on his own. Now language might've been a barrier in this circumstance but human emotion is universal, and the fact that Osa was scared was all too obvious, but we werent having this lunatic pull us off the mountain so we sternly told him to untie from the rope. Osa then began to downclimb, but paused before the difficulties and tried once again to insist that we rope up as a three. Eventually we took pity and began figuring out if we could create an anchor to lower him on, and eventually in doing so found an easier way to scramble down.

Smythson 11 Jul, 2018 Solo Route in good condition. Though wear a helmet due to rock and ice fall. Cold weather gloves for top section - exposed, high and cold winds. Last gondola down 1630. 3.5 hour walk back to Zermatt if you miss it!

Murilo Lessa 28 Aug, 2012 AltLd rpt 2011 We were too slow and loaded. Manage to get until Pic Tyndall (4241m) but it was 3pm and we decided to retreat. 16h on the go. Dehydrated we got lost by the base and had to bivy. We only reached city on the following day. Aff... 2012 Up by Italian Ridge AD+, III, down by Hornli Ridge AD, III- Payback time. We did a full traverse of the Matterhorn, starting from Cervinia via the Italian Ridge and went down the Hörnligrat, on the Swiss side. Once at the base we then went on foot straight to Zermatt. We did not use any lifts but we did use the fixed ropes. Epic!
