Good luck and have fun. The Italian Route will be a great addition to your already impressive climbing/skiing resume. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

I thought the Matterhorn was a joke. It's basically just a big pile of dirt and bad rock. It only took us 17 hours round trip from the Hut. I wish I didn't pay $2,000 to that Swiss guide who basically dragged me up the thing.
