Climbers attempting the north-west ridge of the Trugberg from Obers Mönchjoch, Jungfrau-Aletsch, Switzerland

This part of the Alps had been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as the area comprises some of the tallest - and most precipitous - mountains in the Alps. Behind the camera position are the three famous peaks of Jungfrau, Mönch, and Eiger which together, form a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland and the Swiss Plateau, one of the most distinctive sights of the Swiss Alps. This mountain however, though not one of the tallest in the area, is still a challenge. I hope these climbers, knew what they were doing, as the ridge looked treacherous as the sun had warmed the snow, making falls more likely. It's a long way down!
