Geez Joe - Can't you be more accomodating for those of us who don't want to find a translation site ourselves? Where's the link, Man?

Since you've regressed to cursing... go suck me, kalcario.

jcinco is not j-cinco.

Since you're too tight-assed to go through the trouble of posting a translation then I will.

translation from wordlingo. But nothing about closing it to climbing::

COVER

SWITZERLAND

Collapse in the Cervino A partial loosening del glacier del Cervino causes an evacuation masiv to of mountain climbers, although without mortal victims. - 16.07.2003 By digital Writing

Almost surprising it is that no mountain climber was yesterday buried by the loosening from a part of the glacier of the Cervino (Matterhorn), 15 from July. Mainly because there was mountain as much superficially and as below the zone of the collapse, approximately to the height of the H÷rnli tip, to 3.400 meters.

That yes, the services of rescue had to be used thoroughly, already from the group of Zermatt was amounted in seventy the people who in the heat of were ascent at the moments of the loosening. The high temperatures registered in the zone caused two strong avalanches of ice and rock, that overflowed the Lutschin river.

The last year, a very similar event shook the region of Osetia of the North, in the Russian Ca˙caso. Then, the consequences yes were tragic: more than 150 people ice cubic meters of and stone passed away under about 80. The loosening of the Maili glacier in the defile of Karmadon, buried the inferior valley completely, burying totally the village of the same name.

Hey, I'm with you man. Those other norteamericanos can bite it. Canooks too? Thanks for the translation. Now I have some photos to go hunt up on the web of that overflowing glacier stuffed river. Was over there last summer in Grindelwald.

So CNN and a bunch another local news report mentioned the Swiss Materhorn being closed to climbing. Can't find anything on the net that resembles that. So does anyone have information or are we just quaint enough to throw insults at each other.

The story is here:

It's since been reopened to climbing, but temperatures remain high and there is still the possibility of future collapses and closures.
