We dreamed to climb this route for long time! First day from Zermatt to quote 3600, where we bivouacked, second day we started at 4:30 AM from the bivouac and we got on top at 4 PM! Great and fast climbing on the Zmutt's teeth, but then we wandered a lot on the west face of the Matterhorn because of the bad conditions. There was very few snow, and the quality of the rock was really low! So we had to try lots of different ways to get to the ridge again above the Zmutt's nose. Then we descended to the Solvay Hutte, where we slept, and the third day we return to Zermatt. Wonderful journey, really worth it!

Also with Buff Powell and Rob Sneyd. A serious route with little rock protection. We carried one axe each and one screw per pair, and found the steep glacier approach to the ridge very serious. Summited at 5pm I think. No-one else had been on the route, although the usual crowds on the Hornli. Got to Solway hut after dark. A memorable day

An Epic, the mountain was seriously and dangerously dry. V slow on the West face as a result, stepping on eggshells. Got to Solvay hut at 7 pm.
