Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2006

camp-1

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!

Beautiful mountain in a marvelous place surrounded by Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Linksmann, Polux, Castor, the area of Ripfishorn-Allalinhorn, Weisshorn-Zinarothorn...very great landscape, it's very special. The normal route is very easy and I think is too short (less of 2 hours) but if you don't had much time is the only way to climb. I'll try to back in the future for a route with most interest in this area.

Day 1
Zermatt-Trockener Steg(walking)-bit rainy.
Day 2
Trockener Steg-Plateau Rosa(sped a night in a old shelter)-we decided to wait till next day because of bad changing weather.
Day 3
Early start-first persons on the top that day-great weather. We didn't climb the wall directly but traversed to pass between main and central summit and followed the ridge to the top.
That day we descended to Zermatt.

After an excellent meal and a good night sleep in the Gandegg hut I took the first morning gondola up to Kleine Matterhorn. I was the first one out of the tunnel and managed to keep everyone behind all the way up to the summit where I met two arriving north face climbers. (July 22, 2000)

We walked up to Rifugio Theodulo from Cervinia in an afternoon and spent the night there. In the morning we plodded up the piste to Plateau Rosa then up to the plateau by Klein Matterhorn. Lovely sunny day, scores of people on the peak, hundreds of skiers. I ran out of steam at Col Breithorn and retreated to Cervinia by cable car (about 12 euro). The next day I took the cable back to Plateau Rosa and plodded easily up to Occidentale - about 3hrs in brilliant sunshine.

This is a lovely easy outing as long as the weather's good. In a white-out you could easily walk over the cliff or down a crevasse.

Nice experience like Allainhorn. There is very few 4-thousanders when one can be on the top and eat braekfast and dinner at home the same day ;-)

Climbed the Summit in snow storm with no views at all. It was our acclimatization and coming from Cervinia we did not use any cable cars. It took two days to climb the Summit.

Climb #6 on the Breithorn. Took four total beginners out as a ski tour. Cass had never worn a harness before, and the most experience was Ben with one easy snow climb under his belt (during that one we had to show him how to put on the crampons). All of them were skiing intermediate at best -- it was in fact the first "off piste run" for two of our team. Really hilarious watching them muppet their way down the mountain. Everybody had a blast.



Great fun and sure to do it a seventh time.

I climbed it with Sene. There was strong wind on the ridge, but there was not on the top. Nobody else on the summit at 4 o'clock pm.
