French alpinist Paul Bonhomme has made a fitting end to his 10x project by skiing a spectacular line down the SW Face of Täschhorn (4491m) in Switzerland’s Valais.

As on previous occasions in the past the mountain guide explored the unknown with his hardcore colleague Vivian Bruchez, and after dropping in the duo negotiated difficulties estimated at 5.4/E4.

The 950m line was skied in its entirety, apart from one 5m section close to the base which had to be downclimbed. The line is highly likely to be the first-ever descent of the awesome NW Face, is called X and culminates five months of activity that "have been quite intense."
