The Matterhorn is one the most beautiful pearls of Swiss Alps. The peak offers challenging alpine and rock climbing routs. Skills required for the Matterhorn include the ability to move steadily in mountain boots over fourth and moderate fifth class rock. For winter climbs and also for the final sector of the mountain crampons and ice screw could be required. There is fixed rope cable on some of the steepest upper pitches and some strenuous hand-over-hand climbing is involved. Summit day from the hut takes up to 6 hours of rapid climbing and an equal amount of time in descent.

Getting There 

Numerous routs from Zermatt (Switzerland), Breul in Italy (take a ski lift from Breul to Plato Rossa station and hike to the magnificent mountain through alpine fields)
