An easy summit to start a climbing vacation with. Fantastic views of both Matterhorn and Mont-Blanc for some inspirations.
Climbed with Boris Gurfinkel.
just walk,but nice panorama
With two my friends (majo and Fabio). Nice ascient!
we started a one-week-trip through the Monte Rosa Group with the Breithorn standard route (after we had slept at Gandegg hut for acclimatization). Very busy on the track... We followed the exposed ridge to Breithorn middle and descended to the track to go on to Guide Ayas hut.
Nice acclimatization. I tried it the second time to do the hole ridge to Nordend. Bad weather turned us around.
Très beau panorama au sommet.
My First but not my last
Ski-mountaineering from Cervinia/Plateau Rosa on summit of Breithorn and Klein Matterhorn ( before the construction of cable car).
A kinda boring snow slog but a nice way to acclimatize...bring the AT gear and make some laps!
Climbed this to acclimatize ourselves and took the fastest way up. Nice views though and it didn't take many hours the round trip!
Tim and I started from Klein Matterhorn and we where the first ones on the summit with fresh snow and then we traversed towards the Breithorn Central. Nice view of Matterhorn and Monta Rosa.
This was the first day of my summer holidays in the mountains. This trip was just for acclimatisation and enjoying the panorama of the Walliser Mountains: the summits of Monte Rosa, Matterhorn, Castor, Pollux, Lyskamm and others.
2nd time on Breithorn, I love this mountain like no other, it was my first 4000er, but taking care of and passing all those hundreds of sucking pilgrim fathers up there is really horrible, poore mountain. The summitview offered by this great mountain is one of the very best.
Good weather that turned to near whiteout. Followed tracks back down the glacier. Nice exposure on the ridge!
Starting at 'Refugio Teodulo' with half a meter of new snow, very windy day. My first 4000m peak.
Straightforward peak - good for acclimatisation - beware crevasses - still plenty of people unroped waiting to be an accident!
Tremendous view of surrounding peaks.
Summited the Breithorn for the third time in my life. I was with my wife for her first 4000m. Wonderful weather, a bit windy on the top. For the first time I saw a few crevasses on the route, but they do not create any problem. A few people still with ski, including a friend of mine who fell to the hip in a crevasse during his descent.
Attention! Danger of avalance for higt temperature on the south ridge! Many crevasses!
