If you are after an easy 4000m, this is for you. Not much of an adventure, but just good to get the feeling of how your body and mind work above 4000m (not much different than at 3000m, by the way). It tooks us about 2 hours round trip from the Klein Matterhorn cable car exit w/ photo stops included. Better to enchain it with Castor and Pollux if you are up to it.

Climbed this to acclimatize ourselves and took the fastest way up. Nice views though and it didn't take many hours the round trip!

Tim and I started from Klein Matterhorn and we where the first ones on the summit with fresh snow and then we traversed towards the Breithorn Central. Nice view of Matterhorn and Monta Rosa.

This was the first day of my summer holidays in the mountains. This trip was just for acclimatisation and enjoying the panorama of the Walliser Mountains: the summits of Monte Rosa, Matterhorn, Castor, Pollux, Lyskamm and others.

2nd time on Breithorn, I love this mountain like no other, it was my first 4000er, but taking care of and passing all those hundreds of sucking pilgrim fathers up there is really horrible, poore mountain. The summitview offered by this great mountain is one of the very best.

Good weather that turned to near whiteout. Followed tracks back down the glacier. Nice exposure on the ridge!

PontiusRoute Climbed: Normal route from Klein Matterhorn Station Date Climbed: 13th July 2003  Sucess!
Straightforward peak - good for acclimatisation - beware crevasses - still plenty of people unroped waiting to be an accident!

Tremendous view of surrounding peaks.

Summited the Breithorn for the third time in my life. I was with my wife for her first 4000m. Wonderful weather, a bit windy on the top. For the first time I saw a few crevasses on the route, but they do not create any problem. A few people still with ski, including a friend of mine who fell to the hip in a crevasse during his descent.

We had beautiful weather and a tremendous view.

My first 4000'er. The climbing is easy, but fun in these perfect conditions.

Beautiful weather, no-one around. Perfect day - went up as swan-song to the Haute Route from Chamonix.
