Spanning 14,692 feet, the Matterhorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy. The faces are steep, and only small patches of snow and ice cling to them; It is one of the most deadly peaks in all of Europe. The average climber requires between 9 to 12 hours to accomplish it, Kilian Jornet Burgada set a new speed record by doing it in 2 hours 52 minutes. Setting off from the church at Cervinia (2007m), The climb via the LIons Crest route from Italy took 1:56 for him to touch the summit at 4476m and descend back in 56 minutes.

A long-distance runner, mountain biker and endurance athlete, Jornet is a three-time champion of the Skyrunner World Series and the winner of the 2011 Western States Endurance Run  The rocky terrain is hardly hospitable and challenges the most experienced athlete. With versatile endurance Jornet was able to push through every aspect of the Matterhorn which borders between disciplines of all the different terrain along the mountain. A feat accomplished at this measure is an inspiration to approach your summit with the same ferocity and determination as we persevere to our awesomeness. Check out the link below for a clip of Jornet blazing down the Matterhorn like a mountain goat. click here
