At 4634 meters (15,203 ft) in height, Monte Rosa is the tallest mountain in Switzerland, and the second tallest in the Alps.

The video below follows a group of friends as they make the climb, staying in a series of comfortable looking huts on the way up, and capturing some spectacular views of the landscape around them as they go. The final approach to the summit is a long a tricky-looking knife-edge, but the payoff seems to be worth the effort.
