Winter Solo  Sucess!

Almost no visibility, and strong wind... spend an hour of descent waiting in iglo(!) for better weather. Cable car only from Trockener Steg to Klein Matterhorn and all the rest of it including descent on foot...

Route: normal SW Ridge  Sucess!

Lots of people on the route, but a good start for a week long traverse of the Monte Rosa chain. Summitted in cloud some not much for views unfortunately.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Was hoping to finish the Monte Rosa Traverse on Breithorn after starting at the Monte Rosa Hut, but deep snow and poor weather conditions prevented us from attempting the traverse. Ended up taking the cable car up to Klein Matterhorn and enjoyed an easy, if not cold and windy, climb up the normal route.

Quicky  Sucess!

Tried the traverse but turned back because of weather and walked up to the highest summit a few days later on our way back to Zermatt from the Rossi E Volante bivouac.

Normal route  Sucess!

Cable car to Kl. Matterhorn (87 SF is an offensive price!) 2 hours to the top along a really crowded route. Mist/clouds on the top. Continued to the mittelgipfel along the ridge. Definently worthwhile. Less people and great views. 1 hour back to the cable car. We started at 10 am, so the snow got really heavy and wet. An earlier ascend can be recommended.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Scrapped the Breithorn Traverse due to poor snow conditions and followed the well-travelled dog route to the main summit. Nice end to a fantastic 6-day traverse of the Monte Rosa massif.

Easy top  Sucess!

With three other climbers (Joker Vk among them) were the first ones on the top that day. We came back from Bivacco Roccia Nera (at the east side of the Breithorn) over the upper glacier route of the south slopes of the mountain and went up to the top via the normal route. Clear weather and good snow conditions.

the easiest 4000m in the alps?  Sucess!

I climbed it several times, probably the easiest 4000M in the alps from normal route, very easy and short.

Using cable car. :-( Because of weather this was the only way how to reach at least one 4er summit during this trip to Zermatt.

Coming from the middle summit  Sucess!

Fantastic wheather that day, we left from Klein Matterhorn and held on towards the right to the middle summit. Nice ridge between middle and main W-summit, I can recommend taking that side.
