βeta: The pieste approaches are heavily crevassed. This is a very dry year compared to three years before. The pieste bashers were out the night before but there were still plenty of holes up to the Klein Matterhorn station. Had planned to stay at the Theodulo hut but we were advised against this due to crevasse danger and a very this Col Theodulo making access from the lift difficult.

Wanted to do both west and central but was far too windy for me to hang around on the ridge. Headed up in between the two summits and traversed in from the east. Good day out with a ton of exposure at F.
