il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: Traverse Date Climbed: august 2011  Sucess!

il.rocciatore

Traverse from the bivouac Rossi e Volante. Easy climbing and swift progress to the base of the Breithorn Central. Climbed the first step directly (graded IV), which isn't that hard if you keep your nerves together when searching for the next good hold or belay point. Second and third step are a piece of cake compared with the first one. Nice snow ridge on to final summit.

The half traverse is a fun alpine rock route. Don't waste your time with the normal snow slope route.

Climbed to West Summit from Klein Matternhorn lift. Non-technical walk-up in snow. Crowded. Nice summit though and descent via ridge towards the East was nice as well.

msihlBreithorn west summit via normal route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011

Two day solo trip from Zermatt (Haus Steinnelke) via Furi, Furgg, Trockerner Steg, Gandegg Hütte, Rifugio del Teodulo (Teodulhütte), Testa Grigia and Breithorn West (4165 m). Weather on summit day was nice at first (6.15 am) but then became overcast/cloudy with fog and storm during the final ascent. At least not many people climbed it from Klein Matterhorn due to the shitty conditions. Reached summit at 9.50 am and returned to Trockener Steg station at 12.50 pm.

Perfect condictions to use crampons. Very early in the season, so no cable car to Klein Mat. We rent a snowmobile until 3700m...great!
Was a little bit windy early...but no winds on top.
Best season start from july as the climb bureau is closed and the teleferics was in manutention after the ski season.

A solo ski ascent from Zermatt and my first Swiss 4000'er. Had to walk a long way with ski's and full gear because more snow had melted then I had excpected. Had full camping gear with me and made a bivouac at around 3100m. Next day I summited and had a lovely time skiing down.

First peak I climbed in Europe. Very quick fun climb. The pounding headache after arriving back in Zermatt was some what expected because I didn't do any acclimatization hikes before hand. Nothing a few Advil's couldn't fix.

Diego SahagúnNadie's first 4000er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2010

Diego Sahagún

Nadie and me ascended the mountain starting at Klein Matterhorn and almost being the last on the mountain. Nadie has left her crampons in my car at Täsch but it was not a impediment for us. We asked a group of Spaniards coming from the summit when we were starting to ascend the south flank. They said that it was possible to climb Breithorn without crampons that day. So we celebrated the National Day of Switzerland with a new mountain for us. Once on the top we wanted to follow the ridge to the eastern foresummit but due to the lack of a pair of crampons and the bad weather forecast we decided to descend. The summit was icy so the last was a good decision. The day was perfect though the clouds that appeared when starting the descent. We really enjoyed those mountains' sceneries and celebrated the summit by eating something in Zermatt.

My first 4000 m summit. Ideal snow and weather conditions, so the route was a little bit crowded, but the view from the top made us to forget about it!

Andy Kennedy

Thank god they sell crampons at the cable car station. My partner Dave had left his down in the valley! The traverse was great, however, final ridge to the summit was exposed and scary in the cross winds. Good day out.
