The half-traverse of the Breithorn takes you along the exposed rock ridge from east to west to the main summit of Breithorn. Solid rock, climbing passages with grade 4 difficulty, and the partially exposed ridge with a breathtaking view, give this climb a unique high-alpine character. The climb takes approx. 5 hours from Klein Matterhorn and requires good acclimatisation as well as climbing experience (climbing with crampons).
Agency fee incl. VAT, guiding by mountain guide (cable car tickets are not included in the price)
