Ok, so lots of mountains are pointy with snow on top, but one more than others stands out to most.
When I was a child, I would rope up and ascend this mighty peak (the stairs) with my climbing partners - Barbie, Ken and Action Man. Never appropriately dressed for the occasion, Ken would usually succumb to dying of exposure, slipping, all sorts... I put this down to the fact he chose to climb in a black sparkly tuxedo. Barbie had stilettos (basically crampons) and Action Man was in full jungle gear, but he was Action Man so he survived anything!
The Matterhorn is still on my bucket list of peaks to climb, and so when I was in Zermatt recently, I knew I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get up close and personal with this beautiful mountain.
