Alps 2012 – based Saas Fee & Zermatt (Jun 2012)

30th June – 15th July 2012

An excellent 2 weeks in Switzerland with lots of terrific mountains climbed, valuable alpine experience gained and stunning scenery.

Our travels took us on the following routes:-

Allalinhorn ENE ridge 4027m (PD+) from Britannia Hut

Nadelhorn 4327m (PD+) from Mischabel Hut

Breithorn F (4164m) to Val d’ Ayas hut

Traverse Pollux (4092m) and Castor (4228m) PD+ to Quintino Sella Hut

Return via Monta Rosa Hut.

We had also planned to do Pyramide Vincent and Signalkuppe (also in the Monta Rosa Group) but the weather wasn’t playing nice!

There were a couple of ‘rest days’ which we spent doing  Via Ferrata, over-eating in Zermatt / Saas Fee and even visiting a sauna / outdoor pool!
