Climbed the normal route from the Rossi e Volante bivak.
Excellent conditions to summit
Slope in snow conditions.
Did the traverse from Roccia Nera to Breithorn Central. Good conditions and was relatively easy. Nice practising with a beautifull view.
Climbed with andrea.it during the Breithorn half traverse. Nice view from the summit towards the near 4000s.
Climbed during the Breithorn traverse E to W
After the climb of Central Breithorn.
Had to traverse very high up on the ridge due to recent snowfall
we arrived late in the Bivaco Rossi e Volante, for 2 of mine friends the first 4000 piek
The slope was very icy. After summiting continued to the Breithorn Twins.
breithorn was busy on this day, at the same time we saw only two other people on this route of roccia nera, so a really nice alternative to get away from the crowds. We went to try the traverse but this was our first mixed alpine experience and we wimped out on breithorn central.
Me and my companion were climbing Roccia Nera in good conditions just before the bad weather trapped us in the Bivaco Rossi e Volante for three days! During those three days were receiving the visit of two rope-parties searching for shelter in the storm. During those days I learned to read Italian...!!
In June 2008 I climbed it again with two other friends. Excellent conditions.
The climb was easy from Klein Matterhorn with only small sections of 45º in the ramp with some ice. In the descent we were surprise for a blizzard. The wind was strong and the snowfall covered the foodpath. Thanks to a good orientation in the fog (gps) we can return to Breithon's plateau. The blizzard stopped and finally the sun shined to can take the cable way to Zermatt with marvelous panorama.
