Premier Post: Alpine Help on UKC - with Rich Cross, 31 kbThe Friday night video shows that Alpine dreams can be achieved in less than a week. Watch Rich Cross, Stu McAleese and Graham Frost romp up the North face of the Matterhorn.

From the DMM Website:

"During the third week of October, alpine climbing conditions were reported on one site as: "Unseasonably warm temperatures over the last 10 days has turned excellent North face climbing conditions into a bit of a nightmare." Not what Brit Guides, Stu McAleese and Rich Cross, found on a quick 'alpine hit' when they managed two north face routes during this period.

On a tight schedule they climbed The Shroud on the Grandes Jorasses and joined by Graham Frost went on to make a fast ascent of the classic Schmidt Route on the North Face of the Matterhorn (4478m)".
