Incredible! I was sure this was a photoshopped picture until I read the original article. It is still hard to fathom how this is even possible. Keep in mind that this peak is 14,692 feet high.

I climbed the Matterhorn many years ago as a young buck in my 20's. It was traditionally a three day climb by the standard route (the prominent ridge in the foreground). I am sure the young Turk climbers routinely do it a lot faster today. The North Face route (to the right of the standard route) is still to this day considered to be one of the six most difficult climbs in the Alps.

The Swiss are great people. And like Americans, they have a strong and long standing tradition of private ownership of guns.
