First 4000 m summit
I joined a group tour to the summit with Zermatters, via the normal route. Very easy ascent and enjoyable to get to such a dramatic position in such a short space of time.
Introduced my friend Jan to the world of mountaineering.
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.
