As Gaston Rebuffat writes in his book Men and the Matterhorn, Carrel saw the Matterhorn as a possession . During the ensuing years Whymper made eight unsuccessful attempts to climb the Matterhorn, and on several occasions tried to hire Carrel as his guide.

As Gaston Rebuffat writes in his book Men and the Matterhorn, Carrel saw the Matterhorn as a possession belonging to him by right and the attempts of others to win it as an encroachment on his own territory. This monstrous jealousy, writes Rebuffat, drove the Englishman to want the conquest to be reserved for him alone. Finally, in the second week of July in 1865, Whymper encountered Carrel on the trail and once again asked him to be his guide.

About Gaston Rebuffat. With this elegant book, first published in 1954, Rébuffat transformed mountain writing. Gaston Rébuffat was born on May 7, 1921, in Marseilles, France. He was a recipient of France’s prestigious Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur. Yet his finest feat as a mountaineer was to be the first man to climb all six of the legendary great north faces of the Alps–the Grandes Jorasses, the Piz Badile, the Dru, the Matterhorn, the Cima Grande di Lava-redo, and the Eiger. His insistence on seeing a climb as an act of harmonious communion with the mountain, not a battle waged against it, seemed radical at the time, though Rébuffat’s aesthetic has since won the day.

i saw this book on the streets of Zermatt, IN 1973, while on my honeymoon. I've always wanted this book. It's a library copy, but it's in great condition.
