"Started with my guide Michal Sekelsky at 4 in the morning from the Hörnli hutte. Tired after no sleep in the hut. Around 30 people in total started to climb. Reached Solvay hut within 2- 2,5 hours during the sunrise, and put on the crampons at the start of the fixed ropes. Used no axe after the fixed ropes near the summit. Cloudy weather but on the way down the sky cleared up a bit. Drank 2 liters of water and 1,5 l Coke! and had a bar and a sandwich at Solvay hut on the way down. It took me 4,5 hours up but around 6 hours down. Exposure on the ridge and tired knees is one explanation. The cli" - Matterhorn, niklasbennwik, Jul 18, 2017
"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! " - Breithorn (Mittelgipfel), niklasbennwik, Jul 16, 2017
"Italy. Stayed at camping Gran Paradiso in Valsavarenche valley. Drove to Pont. Planned to have a rest day and just walk to Savoia hut and back. On way back took the slightly longer route via Gran Collet. Did not regret it. Lots of wild ibex on the flanks. At the end of the col decided to climb the top right of it. Quite a scramble to get there." - Monte Giansana, Pieter, Aug 18, 2016
"Icy ascent. It was a race to the summit. Stabbed my leg with a crampon on the way down. Blessed beyond words to be able to attain this life long goal. I believe this to be the most beautiful mountain on Earth." - Matterhorn, amygiannantonio, Jul 28, 2016
"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/" - Breithorn (Mittelgipfel), Christopher, Jun 14, 2016
