The images have been released to celebrate 150 years since the explorer, Edward Whymper, became the first person to ascend the Matterhorn – a14,692 ft high mountain in the Alps.

For the ‘hero shot’ of the collection, Bösch and his team of Mammut athletes illuminated the Matterhorn route with red lights and waited for night to fall. Working with the elements can be tough at the best of times, never mind when you’re half way up a mountain in the middle of the Alps, luckily their patience paid off and the final shot looks great.
