Conditions at Matterhorn?

Postby Jukka Ahonen » Wed Aug 29, 2012 11:51 am

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could provide some up-to-date information about the climbing conditions of Matterhorn? I am travelling to Switzerland this coming weekend, and am aiming to climb Matterhorn around Thursday or Friday next week (guided climb).


thanks in advance,
Jukka

Maybe you could ask the guiding agency.


Thanks :)

Unfortunately my conditioning proved less than ideal at Breithorn, so I had to pass Matterhorn, but my friends successfully summited Matterhorn today. I think the guides managed to clear the path to the top from Hörnli during yesterday.
