We will meet at the Bergfreund Hotel in Herbriggen. Tour briefing and equipment check.
Today we will enjoy one of the most beautiful ridge ascent tours of the Western Alps. We will take the cable car to the Klein Matterhorn and traverse to the Volante Bivouac. We will pass the Breithorn (4164 m) with a rock climbing difficulty up to 3+ and 45 ° in the ice. We will return by cable car. Overnight at the hotel. (About 5 h- 680 m).
In the afternoon we will take the cable car to Schwarzsee and then go up to the Hörnli Hut. (About 2 h / ↑ 676 m).
Early in the morning we will start our climb, together with a lot of people, towards the entrance of the Hörnli ridge. In the dark, we will climb over the entrance of the ridge. At sunrise we will be under the Solvay Hut and continue over the impressive ridge to the summit. The view from the 4478 metres high peak of the Matterhorn is overwhelming! The descent demands full concentration again. After a short stop at the Hörnli Hut, we will continue to the Schwarzsee cableway station. (About 10 h / ↑ 1200 Hm, ↓ 1900).

I offer rental equipment (harness, helmet, crampons, etc.) and cabin reservation.
I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a climbing lover. I grew up in a small farm in Mittersiller Sonnberg. My parents used to show us the beauty of our mountains. When I was 10 years old I went ski touring for the first time and I really loved it. The next years, I started climbing walls which really fascinated me. I also participated in many competitions.
My career took me to Hohe Tauern National Park where I finished the ranger training to bring visitors to the beauties of my country.
In 2013, I got my official certificate as a mountain guide and ski instructor. A dream came true! Since 2014, I have been working a full time guide, guiding in different areas such as Ortler, Valais, Dolomites, Wilder Kaiser, Muztagh Ata (China)... and of course, in some of our famous mountains such as Großvenediger and Großglockner.
Feel free to get in touch with me! I'll be glad to share with you a great moment in the mountains!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
