Hervé Barmasse's Matterhorn Obsession

Hervé Barmasse needs little introduction. Born into mountaineering family and raised under the Matterhorn, the king of all mountains out there, it was inevitable that young Hervé would one day follow in the footsteps of his renowned father. Turning a mountain guide at the age of 22, Hervé knows his backyard like nobody else in the whole world. Inspired by mountains from an early age, it wasn't for long Hervé's first solo ascent of the Mattheron became reality that soon led to opening new routes as well as repeating the prestigious ones, giving him a worldwide recognition. Without a doubt, Hervés is one of the greatest and most passionate alpinists of his era. Mountains have became his life, inspiration, motivation. It has become his obsession.

Watch Herve's short film, "Matterhorn Obsession", that commemorates the Matterhorn’s anniversary and how for him, it is the only mountain worth climbing more than once. July 14th, 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn - the renowned mountain in the Alps straddling the border between Italy and Switzerland which has captured imaginations of explorers around the world. In the countless narratives of fearless ambitions, earned successes, and heroic failures on the Matterhorn, Herve Barmasse, accomplished alpinist and mountaineer, plays an indispensible role. This is not just because Barmasse holds the record for making the most first ascents on the Matterhorn, but more so for his fascinating relationship with the mountain.
