Incredibly complex, the south face of the Matterhorn towers over the small town of Cervinia. On its left side, the classic Lion Ridge, the second normal route on the mountain, and on the right the hardest of the four ridges, the Furggen. In between, a playground of classic and modern hard routes with still a lot of potential new terrain to explore.

 Special thanks to Hervé Barmasse, probably the person who knows the face best, for helping draw the lines!
