The narrow upper ridge of the Schwarzhorn or Corno Nero, on the Monte Rosa, a sharp summit placed at 4322 meters.

On the right of its Holy Mary statue the Ludwigshöhe and on the right the Parrotspitze or Punta Parrot; on the far background, on the left the Zumsteinspitze and on the right the Punta Gnifetti or Signalkuppe with the famous Rifugio Regina Margherita.

A very steep climb up to this peak, with a horrible, fascinating void on the right - the whole, scary Eastern Wall of the Monte Rosa Massif, falling on Alagna for about 2000 meters.

Taken on September 1st, 2013 and here published on the notes of "Kashmir", performed by the great Led Zeppelin.
