Photograph by Toni Frissell

Its famous wedge-shaped peak cloaked in clouds, the Matterhorn towers over the Swiss town of Zermatt, constantly beckoning the townspeople and their guests to climb it. To prepare for her ascent, Marylee Davey (center) of Wakefield, Rhode Island, spent a week with Emil and Max Julen, guiding brothers whose mother was the first woman in Zermatt to climb the Matterhorn. For more about the Matterhorn, see page 32.
