Hervé Barmasse, Giacomo Berthet, Damiano Levati (Italien) - 17 min

Four generations of mountain guides on Matterhorn – that’s the Barmasse family! In March 2010 father Marco (61) and son Hervé (32) start from the Italian side to climb the Enjambée Couloir, which plunges for 1200 meters towards the base of the South Face of Matterhorn. An old project, attempted 24 years ago by Marco. A difficult route, defined by some of the greatest alpinists of the 1980s as “one of the last logical projects in the Alps”.
