    It’s my pleasure to invite you to climb two jewels of the Pennine Alps: the Breithorn and Pollux mountains.

    The Breithorn is a mountain located near the Matterhorn. It is part of the Monte Rosa Massif, on the Italian-Swiss border. This peak actually divides the Mattertal Valley from the Val d’Ayas (Aosta Valley).

    The Breithorn has five summits, one of them is the Roccia Nera, at 4,075 meters. It is the peak that separates the Breithorn from the Pollux, our other objective. The Pollux lies directly north of the Val d’Ayas Hut and its access is quite gentle.

    As for the itinerary of this 2-day climbing trip, we’ll meet in Zermatt. We’ll then take the cableway to the Klein Matterhorn Station, at 3800 meters of altitude. Here starts a beautiful ascent to the Breithorn. By the afternoon, we will descend to the Val d’Ayas Mountain Hut (3394 m), where we’ll spend the night.

    During our second day, we’ll ascend to the Pollux peak (4092 m). The route follows the easy southwestern ridge. Once we reach the summit, we’ll return down by the same route. Finally, we’ll get back to the Klein Matterhorn Station. The round trip takes around 6 hours.

    I also offer many similar programs in the Pennine Alps, like this 2-day climb to Breithorn and Allalinhorn. They are both technically easy ascents as well.
