Normal route  Sucess!

We climbed it with beautifull weather from the Ayas hut. We climbed the normal route from the sadle Felikjoch. Afterwards we did also do Castor and went to the Quentino Sella hut. Easy and beautifull route.

SW-Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with two friends from Belgium who were visiting me here in Switzerland. Good easy climb. Had I known it would be this easy I might've solo'd it before.

Fun Climb  Sucess!

Fun climb with good sections of scrambling/climbing secured with fixed ropes. Good weather, climbed together with Castor, loved it!

Normal route

Had a lot of snowfall the previous night, but the day was good, just the second party to summit that day. All nice except the bottleneck rope-section, can get dangerous/stressful.

SW-ridge  Sucess!

Climbed solo from Klein Matterhorn. Quite many crevasses en route. The way back to Klein Matterhorn should not be underestimated as it goes relentlessly uphill.

Nice climb and magnificent views around!

Camping close to Pollux  Sucess!

On Jul. 20th I put up my tent close to Klein Matterhorn and spent a night up there ar 3.800m. During night I got cought in a thunderstorm but at 03.00 it was a clear sky. Summited Pollux solo at around 07.50 with lots of clouds and wind on the summitridge. While back down on the glacier I got cought in a temporary white-out but thanks to my GPS and a small window in the fog I could orientate myself back on track and found my way back to my safe Marmot tent!

SE Ridge, Normal  Sucess!

Climbed it too late in the day (after summiting on Castor). The return trip was dangerous due to bad snow conditions and crevasses, and we had to walk from Klein Matterhorn to Zermatt after dark.

Castor & Pollux  Sucess!

Nice but short route to the summit: SE ridge. Combined with Castor.

Normal route (I think)  Sucess!

Kl. Matterhorn -> Castor -> Pollux -> Kl. Matterhorn.
We climbed Pollux after being really fast on Castor. Went up the new? normal route. My book by Goedeke shows the normal route as a snow route going up from the east. This face is now almost completely rock. Instead we went up a snow fan and then along a cabled route on rock. Got stuck for 40 mins behind a group of French people that had nothing to do here. They forced one of their team members to climb the chains even though she was crying ... We finally reached the top, didn't see much as clouds was coming in and thunder started. Had to walk fast to make it back to the cable car in heavy wet snow. Still a nice peak though.

Normal route from Guide d'Ayas  Sucess!

Wonderful weather. Very nice route, a mixture of ice and rock. Descended from the west face.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

After Castor. Fun, sporty section equipped with chains. Descended the West Face (bad idea, too late in the day). Fun climb

Route Climbed: Normal from Klein Matterhorn  Sucess!

Started a bit late in the day, around noon because we drove in from Chamonix. Hot temperatures made for a slushy climb up and very high winds made the rock chain section a little more exciting than it should have been! But, had the whole mountain to ourselves that day.
