This is a short tour, but it give the participants just enough time to acclimatize and train on two peaks before ascending the Matterhorn. This is the minimum to insure success. If you feel you need more practice, if you do not have all the skills necessary I suggest the 7/8 days tour that will give you more time to learn all necessary techniques and become familiar with alpine climbing style.
Day 1: Meet in Zermatt (early morning), review gear, condition and tour. Train ride to Rotenboden, ascent of Riffelhorn review of rock climbing techniques
Day 2: Lift ride to klein Matterhorn, traverse of Breithorn plateau and Di Verra glacier ascent of pollux 4092m/13’299ft, descent to Val d’Ayas refugio.
Day 3: Ascent and traverse of Breithorn, 4076m. a great ridge traverse with snow,ice and rock climb. Return to Zermatt.
Day 4: Hike to Hornli hut, reconnaissance of the bottom part of the Matterhorn that we will climb in the dark the next morning.
Day 5: Ascent of Matterhorn, 4476m. A long day that start at 3:00 am and last for 10 to 12 hours. Return to Zermatt that day.
