Route Climbed: Traverse Date Climbed: august 2011  Sucess!

Traverse from the bivouac Rossi e Volante. Easy climbing and swift progress to the base of the Breithorn Central. Climbed the first step directly (graded IV), which isn't that hard if you keep your nerves together when searching for the next good hold or belay point. Second and third step are a piece of cake compared with the first one. Nice snow ridge on to final summit.

Via the half traverse  Sucess!

The half traverse is a fun alpine rock route. Don't waste your time with the normal snow slope route.

Short Climb  Sucess!

Climbed to West Summit from Klein Matternhorn lift. Non-technical walk-up in snow. Crowded. Nice summit though and descent via ridge towards the East was nice as well.

Breithorn west summit via normal route  Sucess!

Two day solo trip from Zermatt (Haus Steinnelke) via Furi, Furgg, Trockerner Steg, Gandegg Hütte, Rifugio del Teodulo (Teodulhütte), Testa Grigia and Breithorn West (4165 m). Weather on summit day was nice at first (6.15 am) but then became overcast/cloudy with fog and storm during the final ascent. At least not many people climbed it from Klein Matterhorn due to the shitty conditions. Reached summit at 9.50 am and returned to Trockener Steg station at 12.50 pm.

First Alpine 4000er!  Sucess!

Perfect condictions to use crampons. Very early in the season, so no cable car to Klein Mat. We rent a snowmobile until 3700m...great!
Was a little bit windy early...but no winds on top.
Best season start from july as the climb bureau is closed and the teleferics was in manutention after the ski season.

Solo ski ascent from Zermatt  Sucess!

A solo ski ascent from Zermatt and my first Swiss 4000'er. Had to walk a long way with ski's and full gear because more snow had melted then I had excpected. Had full camping gear with me and made a bivouac at around 3100m. Next day I summited and had a lovely time skiing down.

Breithorn   Sucess!

First peak I climbed in Europe. Very quick fun climb. The pounding headache after arriving back in Zermatt was some what expected because I didn't do any acclimatization hikes before hand. Nothing a few Advil's couldn't fix.


markhallam - Dec 29, 2010 2:23 am Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2000

Breithorn 4 times!  Sucess!
