Climbed the normal route during a short Monte Rosa trip with climbing partners Ramon, Peter-Arjen and Frank.
Climbed from the Matterhorn Lift thing. Easy enough, but good acclimatisation, crampon and rope practice for Matterhorn itself
This mountain is a 4000 mts peak very easy to access.
The first of many 4000-ers to come. Climbed together with Pieter and Werner from Klein Matterhorn (Normal Route). Easy ascent, great views!
Easy accessable for acclimatization
Thanks to the perfect weather, this was an easy and pleasant hike. We went from the Italian side using the Testa Grigia lifts so it was all pretty quick via the Italian normal route.
Lots of people, mostly with guides. Some of them funny. The summit provides probably the best mountain panorama I have ever seen.
Perfect weather the whole week. We ascended the Breithorn, Castor, Pollux, Parrotspitze and Signalkuppe. Slept at the Monta Rosa Hut.
Climbed with my dad, nice peak.
Very nice and smooth normal route climb with a perfect weather (sunny, not windy, blue sky, ...).
Easy but very pleasant climb.
Climbed with Daniel
Climbed Western and Central Breithorn from the Refuge Guide d'Ayas in a beautiful day.
Loved the climb. At the summit, we ended up taking on two other climbers onto our rope that were a bit freaked about descending the peak. Both were inexperienced and one was half stumbling descending the steep snow; I took the rear and kept thinking I'd have to do a group arrest with each plant of my axe.
Me and Pol got on top of this beautiful mountain carrying a >20kg backpack... painfull but achievable.
For the second time on this summit.
Try not to take to may shots of the Matterhorn, as I most certainly did.
Nice climb up the S face and down the normal route.
Camping between Klein Matterhorn and Breithorn after walking the glaicer from Trockner Steg (the f-ing lift was broken). Successfull summit attempt on Breithorn 17th of July. My first 4000 meter peak!
We started from Klein Matterhorn and did the west peak of Breithorn. Over the next 2 days we climbed Pollux, Castor, and Ludwigshoehe before descending the Gorner Glacier to the Monte Rosa Hut. At this point I had to descend all the way to Visp to get surgery for a strange illness and we were not able to climb Dufourspitze as we had planned.
