After we had climbed Pollux we climbed Castor and reached the summit at about 4 o'clock. There were a lot of clouds and the weather started to change rapidly.

ZurbriggenRoute Climbed: West face from Plateau Rosa  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2003

Zurbriggen

Did the climb as preparation for Matterhorn. Because of the very hot 2003 season the crevasses were very open, and the snowbridges very delicate. The final ridge to the summit is quite airy.

The view from the summit is great!

The long snow flank up Castor became even longer having accended Pollux first. No view was offered at the summit so we headed almost directly down to the Sella hut. A long day. (July 25, 2000).
