Ascent Trip Report

Two day solo trip from Zermatt (Haus Steinnelke) via Furi, Furgg, Trockerner Steg, Gandegg Hütte, Rifugio del Teodulo (Teodulhütte), Testa Grigia and Breithorn West (4165 m). Weather on summit day was nice at first (6.15 am) but then became overcast/cloudy with fog and storm during the final ascent. At least not many people climbed it from Klein Matterhorn due to the shitty conditions. Reached summit at 9.50 am and returned to Trockener Steg station at 12.50 pm.
