very easy climb,good when you are not sure about weather for all day.We chose it to check snow conditions after snowfalls.SE ridge in Breithorn Centrale direction is very narrow and atractive.
Climbed with Ania
1st European Summit
My first 4000 m summit. Ideal snow and weather conditions, so the route was a little bit crowded, but the view from the top made us to forget about it!
Thank god they sell crampons at the cable car station. My partner Dave had left his down in the valley! The traverse was great, however, final ridge to the summit was exposed and scary in the cross winds. Good day out.
started at 3700mters and got good snow for use crampons.
My first 4000 in the alps!
after bad weather the prev week.
Little climb from klein Matterhorn, but nice.

Our first summit on what was to become an epic 3 day traverse over to Nordend, starting from the Kl. Matterhorn station
Together with dad and older brother Jon summited on a beautiful day !!!
Together with dad and younger brother Unai summited on a beautiful day !!!
Started before dawn and reached the summit before the crowds from the cable car arrived :) Beautiful views from the summit and no wind :):)
Started from the Kl. Matterhorn and ascended the normal route. Descended by the ridge east from the main summit. Perfect weather, great climb for acclimitizing.
Did the haf traverse from the east via three rock towers. Nice and dry rock but quite a lot of snow on ridges which made it more "intresting". My first +4000m peak!
Normal route to the main summit and then traversed to the Central summit.
Started at 06.00 from Theodulhütte, no major difficulties, a long walk up, a lot of people on the route which was probably the difficulty nr 1.
My first 4000m top!
Easy climb, incredible views. Fresh snow on top the day before...really fast descent by sliding part of the way down on our back sides.
Climbed the Triftjigrat route. Completed the route in 6 hours from the Gandegg hut. Carried rope but opted to solo route as snow conditions were excellent. First people on the summit (9am).
Followed the normal route. We started early enough to avoid a to crowdy top. We stood on the top with only 2 others, while after us a whole mass was heading for the top. It might be an easy walk up to the summit, but the views on top are incredible.
Fantastic clear, sunny conditions so views from summit were spectacular. Two of us went up the normal route with a local guide leading. Lots of deep, soft snow, so snow shoes were necessary. Note to self: next time, hire SHORTER ones!
From Plateau Rosa,the normal route. very nice view from the summit.
