Topic - Alps for a long weekend, suggestions please!

maybe_si - on 01 Aug 2013

I am looking at heading out to the alps for a long weekend, currently looking at 6-9th September. I have done various bits and bobs in the alps over the years but never huge amounts.

Ideally we are looking at flying out and getting sorted on the Friday then doing an amazing route on the Sat/Sun followed by beers and celebrations and then heading home on the Monday!

I am currently thinking of maybe the Cassin Route? Or possibly a traverse of the Matterhorn? I'm quite open to other ideas though as long as it is good, long and fun! We can both pretty happily lead E1 or harder if we need to but I wouldn't fancy much harder than that on a huge alpine scale although the odd crux pitch is not a problem.

Any advice on logistics, where to stay, whether to hire a car or not etc is most welcome.
