We remind you that the ascent of the Matterhorn by the Lion ridge is a mountaineering itinerary where experience and good training are essential. The first mountaineering difficulties begin before the Carrel hut, so we recommend a roped up progression . Always taking into account your mountaineering skills, your training and the progression you intend to use!
