Insane Matterhorn Summit Footage

It takes a certain level of courage to scale mountains, but the Matterhorn, the most recognized mountain on the European continent, requires that much more. Training hard on your home turf will build you the buns o’ steel you will need to summit the famous chiseled rock pyramid, but no matter how fit and mountain-savvy you are, it’s recommended you take on the Matterhorn alongside an experienced mountaineering guide.

What with the staggering number of challenging summits to reach, Switzerland is the birthplace of mountaineering guiding, but the valuable practice has since spread worldwide. From Houssain Braim in Morocco to Carlos Verdeguer in Peru, mountaineering guides dot the world and they eagerly anticipate your arrival; nothing brings them greater satisfaction than assisting travellers up the peaks of their local area’s breathtaking mountains. Go on, watch the following video, but be warned: one, it’s a little nerve wracking; two, you’re guaranteed to find yourself wanting to do just what Joshua Pennell (the man featured in this video) is doing ASAP. And all we can say to that is, “Be our guest, but hire a mountaineering guide!”
