Half traverse

"Started the half traverse of Breithorn from the klein Matterhorn cable car at 8.15 and reached the peak at 11.15 and came back to the cable car at 12.15. At the ridge poor visibility and wind speed up to 70 kmh. Climbed with a guide and Takayuki Tamaki from Osaka. Good day! " - niklasbennwik, Jul 16, 2017
"My other 4000m summit of the trip after Breithorn West. I didn't stay true to the ridge along the traverse which was heavily corniced with the fresh snow, and had a few small crevasses near the saddle. Weather started turning as I made fresh tracks to the summit, then hightailed it back down. Complete TR: http://themtsarecalling.com/breithorn/" - Christopher, Jun 14, 2016
