Topic - What rope to use for short roping on the Matterhorn?

nation1 - on 05 May 2014

Hi. Whats the best rope ie single & length/diametre to use for 2 persons in a short roping situation on the Matterhorn Hornli ridge?? any info regarding the route, hints tips, start times etc involving the climb.

Is it a myth that guides have the right to start the ridge first or am i barking up the wrong tree??

what guide book can i find information on the Matterhorn.

And can any one recommend good acclimatization training for the hornli ridge, apart from the prep in the uk. in the past I've done Castor, Pollux, Breithorn etc but apart from breithorn traverse castor & pollux are not very technical.

any info will be welcomed
