This is the most epic tribute ever!

Sheer- cliff and dangerous paths are a challenge for any mountaineering photographer. Isn't it?

Robert Bösch has accepted that challenge. Robert has shot some astonishing photographs over a period of few years for  Mammut, a Swiss mountaineering equipment company. The photographs will be used as part of an ad campaign for the company and also serve as an homage to Edward Whymper and the 150th anniversary of his climb up the Matterhorn in 1865.

For those who are not aware of Edward Whymper, he was an English mountaineer and explorer who climbed the 14,692 feet high Matterhorn for the first time ever. Unfortunately, four people in his group fell to their deaths while climbing down the Matterhorn. Since then, 500 mountaineers have died on the Matterhorn, which makes it one of the deadliest peaks in the World!
