New Route Soloed On The Matterhorn

An Italian climber spent 4 days and 3 nights on a new route on the Matterhorn. More of his story here. :At about the 3:30 mark of the video, you can see him pull a large chunk of rock off the route and:

The rock is so chossy and untrustworthy that, as he stated on numerous occasions, Barmasse doesn't recommend his new route to anyone. The rock is too friable, the undertaking simply too dangerous... And this is also why he didn't want to give the route a grade.”
