Add Heading hereWhen I was in Zermatt end of August / beginning of September 2006 for a few tours (Breithorn, Pollux...), I had the chance to see "the Horn" in complete different conditions within very few days.
At that point in time Matterhorn was more or less inapproachable - there was too much snow - the horn hasn't been climbed for several weeks. Already the way up to the Hörnli hut was not so easy (lots of loose snow) in the ferrata-like sections towards the end. The Hörnli hut was more or less empty - far away from the crowded scenarios you can read about in literature... ;)
This album is a collection of the best photos taken during this time, just to have the possibility of viewing them at a glance.
