"Traversed the Castor after having climbed Pollux. We were almost struck by lightning on the descend, scary stuff. pointer: the food at the Rifugio Quintino Sella is the worst, you can not call it a meal!" - SolidBeat, Jul 16, 2006
"The day after completing Mountain Ventures alpine training course. John Patton and I had an extra day so I led a climb with John. We took the first telepherique to Klein Matterhorn and left Klein Matterhorn at 08:00. We crossed to the Breithornpass and roped up. We then contoured round the upper slopes of the Verra glacier with some descent. Several crevasses were crossed, though there was a fairly well worn track. We passed under Pollux and made towards Zwillingjoch. Just short of this we moved on to the snow/ice slopes of Castor, first going southwards and then trending left. Moderately stee" - peter43, Aug 19, 1983
