|A super climb. Very comfortable and not difficult at all. From lift it was less than 1 1/2 hours to summit. Weather was perfect although the wind really picked up as we got higher, making the summit visit very brief. Just 3 other groups on mountain that day. Views absolutely fantastic!|

|Started in Zermatt at midnight. Mario and I rode bikes til we ran out of road, hiked to the Gandegghutte where we had an early breakfast and then descended into the Theodulgletscher. Finding our way through the crevasses in the dark was interesting! Finally started to climb the north face of the Breithorn. 60 degree ice lower down and mixed climbing near the summit. 5.5 hours from the hut. Great day!|

|We climbed Breithorn-Roccia Nera from Klein Matterhorn in a bad day with snowfall in the summit and the return across the glacier. No views, but a new 4000m.|

|Nikman||Traverse from E to W |
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2003
|I traversed all five 4000 meter summits in the list of the UIAA from east to west.|
1st day: took the train to Gornergrat, from there to Monte Rosa Hütte.
2nd day: from Monte Rosa Hütte to Bivacco Rossi e Volante.
3rd day: traversing Roccia Nera and all 4 Breithorn summits and return with cable car from Kleines Matterhorn to Zermatt.
Clouds on our summit day gave us almost no view unfortunately.
I remember big crevasses in the summer of melting glaciers back in 2003.
I am not sure about the exact date of the summit day, so don´t nail me on that, because this has been almost 4 years ago and we were travelling 3 weeks all over Europe that summer. The pictures of my old digicam only show the date when I downloaded them to my computer.

|It's good choice to get an acclimatization, I think.|
Done during one day, without guide.

Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2006
|Went to Breithorn. Technically it is very easy but part of the group felt the altitude and we decided to turn back. |
Weather was mostly good but at times clouds came in.

|Did the normal route with my girlfriend Irene. We had a complete whiteout on the day before, so after some hoping and waiting we went back and did a hike to the Hörnli hut. But on the 31st of august we received the reward for our patience - it was a cloudless day with ideal conditions and not too many people (we even had the whole summit for ourselves for a few minutes to enjoy the panorama from Gran Paradiso to Mt. Blanc, Matterhorn Weisshorm, Dom, etc. and back...).|

|Traversed from Roccia Nera to Breithorn West in two days.|
The forst day we left Plateu rosà quite late (we arrive from Milan) at 12.00. reached Roccia Nera at 14:20 we traversed Breithorn twin 4106 and Breithorn East. Then at the beginning of the rocky ridge of the Breithorn Central since it was quite late (about 17:45) we quit and we descended to the Refuge Guide Cervino. The day after, the 23th August we came back to terminate the traverse.
Wonderfull sunny days, a lot of snow on the rocks with a lot of ice

|My first 4000 mtr peak is sick, she losing weight at an alarming rate. You can see on the picture that the rocky outcrop on the west face is getting bigger each year, more and more crevasses open up on the face itself and the local guides consider it to be more and more dangerous every year. This week guides told their client's that they wouldnt take them up several times. The upper Theodull glacier fails to reach the lift station at Trockener stegg for the first time. I'm afraid its going to be a lot worse next year.|
I say bollock's to global warming !

|If you have any experience at all you probably don't need a guide. Just follow the footpath. This was my wife's first climb with crampons and ropes but she did great!|
