Route Climbed: normal and traverse to Breithorn middle Date Climbed: August 7th 2000  Sucess!

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.

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.

Route Climbed: Normal route from Klein Matterhorn Station Date Climbed: 13th July 2003  Sucess!

Straightforward peak - good for acclimatisation - beware crevasses - still plenty of people unroped waiting to be an accident!

Tremendous view of surrounding peaks.

Route Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: 5 july 2003  Sucess!

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.
