Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2008


Kl. Matterhorn -> Castor -> Pollux -> Kl. Matterhorn. Took the first cablecar up. Good conditions with a hard snow crust. Reached the top of Castor in 3 hours, a pretty easy ascend. Mostly cloudy but we got a few great views. Climbed Pollux on the way back. Speed is important if you want to catch the last cablecar. Another nice day in the mtns.

We came back to climb Castor again - a beautiful peak! Very high winds and blowing powder snow in the morning, miserably high temperatures in the afternoon, but a great outing regardless! With my wife Sonya.

Started from Q. Sella Hut, then Felikjoch, then up the East Ridge. Passed numerous guided groups on the descent and then headed up to do Pollux. Easy but aesthetic.

Klein Matterhorn - Schwarztor - Castor - Schwarztor - Zermatt. Great day, but hard work in the steep NNW face due to fresh snow.

More images from this ascent.
