TRIP DESCRIPTION

ASCENSION TO THE MATTERN

The Cervino or Matterhorn with its 4,478mts is probably one of the most aesthetic and recognized mountains in the world, the dream of the vast majority of mountaineers. Until the late 1800s it was considered an impossible mountain to climb, it was first climbed in 1865 by a group of 7 climbers, 4 of whom lost their lives on the descent.

Most of the ascents are made by one of the four edges that make up the mountain, these being:

  • Hörnli (northeast): the most common and busy because it is the least technical and best equipped.
  • Lion (south-west): the Italian route from Cervinia, a little more complicated than the previous one.
  • Zmutt (northwest): of a high difficulty.
  • Furggen (southeast): the most complicated and technical.

To these we must add the famous and difficult routes of the North face.

matterhorn ascension

We present an express program to climb the Hörnli ridge in 2 days from Zermatt with 1 extra day to be used in case of inclement weather.

Even though it is not a very technical mountain, you need good physical shape since its 1,200m of sustained climbing with steps from level II to III, if fixed ropes are used, or up to level IV if you do not want to use them.

Near the top we can find sections of mixed terrain that will require us to use ice axes and crampons, so you must have a minimum of technique for these elements.

This express program is for mountaineers with good physical and technical shape and a minimum of acclimatization. We also have a complete 6-day program where a prior ascent to Monte Rosa is carried out and a set of extra activities to reach the end of the week. to the Matterhorn with all the guarantees of success.

ITINERARY

Day 1

ZERMATT TO HöRNLI SHELTER

To go up to the refuge we can use the cable car that will take us up to the Schwarzsee (black lake).

day 2

Matterhorn 4478m by Arista Hörnli – Zermatt

We will get up at dawn and have breakfast to gather all the necessary strength for this long day of mountaineering. We will leave the refuge with all the material on since the path to the summit is all climbing following the edge. Half way we will pass by the Solvay refuge at about 4,000 meters, a cabin for use only in case of emergency. From there we can start to find snow up to the top which will make us use crampons. Once we have reached the summit, and with the obligatory photo on the cross at the top, we will begin the descent along the same route.

Day 3

extra day

We have an extra day so that in the case of inclement weather it has not been possible to ascend the day before.
