ALONG THE HORNLI RIDGE
From July to mid September
Surely, its view from Zermatt, is the most famous mountain view on the planet, and certainly the most photographed. Tall, slender and elegant with no other mountain around it.
The ascent, if in good conditions, is always busy but we will rewarded by the great satisfaction of getting on the top, where you will enjoy one of the best 360° view in the whole Alps.
TECHNICAL INFOS: This itinerary is a bit easier but longer then the Italian one along the Lion’s ridge. It's mostly a rock climb ascent equipped with several fixed ropes. Anyway it presents several steps up to grade III°. Sometimes, depending on the conditions, we’ll need to take the crampons on. The concentration level must be always very high also for the presence of many other teams .
