Normal route  Sucess!

Did the normal route with my girlfriend Irene. We had a complete whiteout on the day before, so after some hoping and waiting we went back and did a hike to the Hörnli hut. But on the 31st of august we received the reward for our patience - it was a cloudless day with ideal conditions and not too many people (we even had the whole summit for ourselves for a few minutes to enjoy the panorama from Gran Paradiso to Mt. Blanc, Matterhorn Weisshorm, Dom, etc. and back...).

Traverse  Sucess!

Traversed from Roccia Nera to Breithorn West in two days.
The forst day we left Plateu rosà quite late (we arrive from Milan) at 12.00. reached Roccia Nera at 14:20 we traversed Breithorn twin 4106 and Breithorn East. Then at the beginning of the rocky ridge of the Breithorn Central since it was quite late (about 17:45) we quit and we descended to the Refuge Guide Cervino. The day after, the 23th August we came back to terminate the traverse.
Wonderfull sunny days, a lot of snow on the rocks with a lot of ice

Mountains in demise

My first 4000 mtr peak is sick, she losing weight at an alarming rate. You can see on the picture that the rocky outcrop on the west face is getting bigger each year, more and more crevasses open up on the face itself and the local guides consider it to be more and more dangerous every year. This week guides told their client's that they wouldnt take them up several times. The upper Theodull glacier fails to reach the lift station at Trockener stegg for the first time. I'm afraid its going to be a lot worse next year.
I say bollock's to global warming !

Fun climb!  Sucess!

If you have any experience at all you probably don't need a guide. Just follow the footpath. This was my wife's first climb with crampons and ropes but she did great!

Normal route  Sucess!

Beautiful mountain in a marvelous place surrounded by Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Linksmann, Polux, Castor, the area of Ripfishorn-Allalinhorn, Weisshorn-Zinarothorn...very great landscape, it's very special. The normal route is very easy and I think is too short (less of 2 hours) but if you don't had much time is the only way to climb. I'll try to back in the future for a route with most interest in this area.

Twice  Sucess!

August 9, 2020
One day ascent from Testa Grigia. Dozens of people, perfect weather.

July 15, 2006
Day 1
Zermatt - Trockener Steg (walk)-bit rainy.
Day 2
Trockener Steg-Plateau Rosa (spent a night in a old shelter) - we decided to wait till next day because of bad weather.
Day 3
Early start - first persons on the top that day - great weather. We didn't climb the wall directly but traversed to pass between main and central summit and followed the ridge to the top.
That day we descended to Zermatt.

Tourist route  Sucess!

After an excellent meal and a good night sleep in the Gandegg hut I took the first morning gondola up to Kleine Matterhorn. I was the first one out of the tunnel and managed to keep everyone behind all the way up to the summit where I met two arriving north face climbers. (July 22, 2000)

Route Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: 28 Aug 2005  Sucess!

We walked up to Rifugio Theodulo from Cervinia in an afternoon and spent the night there. In the morning we plodded up the piste to Plateau Rosa then up to the plateau by Klein Matterhorn. Lovely sunny day, scores of people on the peak, hundreds of skiers. I ran out of steam at Col Breithorn and retreated to Cervinia by cable car (about 12 euro). The next day I took the cable back to Plateau Rosa and plodded easily up to Occidentale - about 3hrs in brilliant sunshine.

This is a lovely easy outing as long as the weather's good. In a white-out you could easily walk over the cliff or down a crevasse.
