JanVanGenkSW-ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2009


Climbed solo from Klein Matterhorn. Quite many crevasses en route. The way back to Klein Matterhorn should not be underestimated as it goes relentlessly uphill.

Nice climb and magnificent views around!

On Jul. 20th I put up my tent close to Klein Matterhorn and spent a night up there ar 3.800m. During night I got cought in a thunderstorm but at 03.00 it was a clear sky. Summited Pollux solo at around 07.50 with lots of clouds and wind on the summitridge. While back down on the glacier I got cought in a temporary white-out but thanks to my GPS and a small window in the fog I could orientate myself back on track and found my way back to my safe Marmot tent!

secanderSE Ridge, Normal  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


Climbed it too late in the day (after summiting on Castor). The return trip was dangerous due to bad snow conditions and crevasses, and we had to walk from Klein Matterhorn to Zermatt after dark.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2003


First climbed the normal route through the rocks on the south. Conditions were like in winter with lots of ice and a snowstorm. Due to the weather we couldn't go further after reaching the madonna. The day after we climbed it again via the southeast wall, this time all the way to the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2008


Kl. Matterhorn -> Castor -> Pollux -> Kl. Matterhorn.
We climbed Pollux after being really fast on Castor. Went up the new? normal route. My book by Goedeke shows the normal route as a snow route going up from the east. This face is now almost completely rock. Instead we went up a snow fan and then along a cabled route on rock. Got stuck for 40 mins behind a group of French people that had nothing to do here. They forced one of their team members to climb the chains even though she was crying ... We finally reached the top, didn't see much as clouds was coming in and thunder started. Had to walk fast to make it back to the cable car in heavy wet snow. Still a nice peak though.

After Castor. Fun, sporty section equipped with chains. Descended the West Face (bad idea, too late in the day). Fun climb

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2008


Started a bit late in the day, around noon because we drove in from Chamonix. Hot temperatures made for a slushy climb up and very high winds made the rock chain section a little more exciting than it should have been! But, had the whole mountain to ourselves that day.

Monte Rosa hut - Schwarztor - Rifugio Guide del Val d'Ayas - Pollux - Schwarztor - Zermatt.

No the shortest way, but a very scenic 2 day ski trip.

This was a greated mixed climb up a steep ridge. We had great weather and long reaching views. From the top the views of the Breithorn, Castor and the Matterhorn are awe inspiring.
