/ Some snaps of our recent weekend Matterhorn Trip
Did you do the trip in one Weekend?
I did it a few years back Friday to Monday - its amazing what you can do in a long weekend.
Personally I feel that links to appealing, aspirational images of apparently quite feasible Alpine climbs should be banned on UKC...it's simply too corrupting for the easily influenced
[and it's hardly an important, relevant topic for debate on these forums like Miley Cyrus is it]
great photos by the way...!
Very nice pics.
What route did you use. (Know very little as you can imagine).
Hi, it was the Hornli ridge, the snow makes a hell of a difference, but will be back next year doing the same.
Hi, yes we climbed on the friday and spent the night in the Salvoy Hut and got back down to Zermatt after missing the lift on the Saturday around 20:30hrs.
This is a yearly long weekend outing that I seem to do.
They are constructing a new Hut and the Horli Hutte is closed till next year.
I've done this route a few times, never gets easier, I'll be back there next year.
If I can do it, any fit younger guy with the mind can do it, although I wound't go with anyone I don't know.
I'll be back on the Matterhorn next year, so more pics.
