Matterhorn: new route by Hervé Barmasse

5 days solo climbing on Picco Muzio

18 April 2011   Hervé Barmasse is back again on the Matterhorn, his “home” mountain, after climbing the last spring with his father Marco, the long "couloir Barmasse" .   In early April, the Mountain Guide of Valtournenche has done the first ascent, staying five days on the wall, a new route on the south face of Picco Muzio, 4235m. The route follows a gully of snow and ice for 500 meters and then pass a high vertical and overhanging wall of bad rock where no one had ever ventured before.   "When I reached Picco Muzio - Hervé wrote on his website -  stress and fear of not being able to complete the climb suddenly disappeared and remained only a great happiness and inner peace. I was aware that I have done something great, but mostly I was happy to not climb any longer on such a bad and friable rock. Above me there were only heaven and the first the stars of the night."   Source: website  Hervé Barmasse -  Grivel
