Breithorn West and Central  Sucess!

I climbed Breithorn from Teodulo refuge with 11 other members of the French Alpine Club in order to reach the summit before the cable-car climbers. I crossed the nice but impressive ridge to the Central summit. Best snow conditions.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

The only clear day on my 12-day tour of parts of France and Switzerland...and it was perfect. Fantastic views.

I think I was the only person on the mountain unroped and in trail runners. Didn't see any reason for plastics, synthetics, ropes, harnesses, etc. on this route (in those conditions).

the fourth time  Sucess!

from Plateu Rosà to the top (1:50min) and then to the Central summit and back (in about 4 hour all the tour).
Wonderfull day: it was the 4th time there. I like it even if it is just an easy walk. But the panorama is wonnderfull

great view  Sucess!

First cable to Klein Matterhorn. Went up alone. Up and down in about 3 hours, including a good rest on summit with wonderful view. Clear skies and alone on summit (for like 2 minutes). Lots of people coming up using ropes and guides.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the SW ridge via the Klein Matterhorn. This was a really easy glacier climb. The summit has incredible views of the Monta Rosa group and the Matterhorn and Weisshorn.

Normal Route  Sucess!

A super climb. Very comfortable and not difficult at all. From lift it was less than 1 1/2 hours to summit. Weather was perfect although the wind really picked up as we got higher, making the summit visit very brief. Just 3 other groups on mountain that day. Views absolutely fantastic!

Breithorn Triftjigrat  Sucess!

Started in Zermatt at midnight. Mario and I rode bikes til we ran out of road, hiked to the Gandegghutte where we had an early breakfast and then descended into the Theodulgletscher. Finding our way through the crevasses in the dark was interesting! Finally started to climb the north face of the Breithorn. 60 degree ice lower down and mixed climbing near the summit. 5.5 hours from the hut. Great day!

Roccia Nera  Sucess!

We climbed Breithorn-Roccia Nera from Klein Matterhorn in a bad day with snowfall in the summit and the return across the glacier. No views, but a new 4000m.

Traverse from E to W  Sucess!

I traversed all five 4000 meter summits in the list of the UIAA from east to west.
1st day: took the train to Gornergrat, from there to Monte Rosa Hütte.
2nd day: from Monte Rosa Hütte to Bivacco Rossi e Volante.
3rd day: traversing Roccia Nera and all 4 Breithorn summits and return with cable car from Kleines Matterhorn to Zermatt.
Clouds on our summit day gave us almost no view unfortunately.
I remember big crevasses in the summer of melting glaciers back in 2003.
I am not sure about the exact date of the summit day, so don´t nail me on that, because this has been almost 4 years ago and we were travelling 3 weeks all over Europe that summer. The pictures of my old digicam only show the date when I downloaded them to my computer.

easy route with beautiful views  Sucess!

It's good choice to get an acclimatization, I think.
Done during one day, without guide.

Normal route  Sucess!

Did the normal route with my girlfriend Irene. We had a complete whiteout on the day before, so after some hoping and waiting we went back and did a hike to the Hörnli hut. But on the 31st of august we received the reward for our patience - it was a cloudless day with ideal conditions and not too many people (we even had the whole summit for ourselves for a few minutes to enjoy the panorama from Gran Paradiso to Mt. Blanc, Matterhorn Weisshorm, Dom, etc. and back...).
