“Team Asscent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

A small bunch of adventure travel professionals got together to do an accent. It was a great clear sunny day so it could not be anything else but a great day. A easy 4000 meter peak for anyone with reasonable fitness to get some stunning views

“An easy climb to a spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Breithorn is both beautiful from Zematt as it is from Champoluc (italy). From the arrival of the Klein Matterhorn cablecar it is merely a short hike to the top, providing a gorgeous and limitless spectacular view on the Matterhorn to the Mont Blanc (France). Highly recommended for a first experience on a 4000+ m mountain.

“easy 4000m plus ascent if the weathers right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We climbed the Breithorn on our last visit in 2007 when the weather was excellent, this time we encountered very different conditions, mist and snow, avalanche warnings and lightly covered crevasses on the approach over the glacier . this time we did not summit.We could not see the ridge to the right hand side of the summit because of the mist.The ridge is the way we went to the top last time .The vertical face is on the left of the summit, not a place to be in bad visibility. Theres always next time!

“Challenge Yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Our 24 yr old daughter climbed this mountain with no experience but had a wonderful Zermatt guide. She rented the equipment and did something that she will never forget. You have to be in good physical shape to do this; you are climbing a glacier mountaintop.
