Piolet d'Or for Simon Anthamatten

Zermatt climber Simon Anthamatten (26) and Ueli Steck (32) were presented with the "Piolet d'Or" for an alpine-style first ascent of the north face of the 6500m-high Tengkampoche. This famous mountaineering prize has been awarded since 1991 and brings together the best international mountain climbers. Anthamatten and Steck already received the Prix Courage in 2008 for their rescue mission on Annapurna, where they aborted their expedition in order to save a climber.
