Matterhorn 2

 Manfred climbing high on the Matterhorn. Then we put on our crampons  and at about 200m below the summit Manfred's crampons broke with the front section falling down the mountain side. It was sad moment as we immediately realised that to continue on the steep snow and ice section would be very difficult and dangerous so we had to turn around. Mike and Tania summited.
