from Klein Matterhorn SW ridge,descent via SE narrow ridge  Sucess!

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.

Normal route   Sucess!

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!

Half Traverse  Sucess!

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.

Breithorn Mittelgipfel/Central  Sucess!

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!

Triftjigrat Route  Sucess!

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).

From Klein Matterhorn  Sucess!

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.

Normal Route  Sucess!

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!
