A short tour along the Kuffnergrat (east pillar) at Piz Palü
up to the Liongrat at the Matterhorn
Who hasn't ever dreamed of standing on the peak of the Matterhorn? We start our tour with the journey to the Bernina pass, where we take the last gondola to the Diavoleza hut. We spend the night there and climb the east pillar of Piz Palü the next day, where beautiful ridge climbing in not too heavy rock awaits us. Finally we go over a beautiful firn edge to the summit. Afterwards we descend to the Diavoleza cable car and take the gondola back to the valley, immediately after we drive to Cervinia and check into a hotel there. The next day is for relaxing and shopping in Breuil. The next morning we take the first taxi to the Abruzzi hut, and then an easy ascent of 3-4 hours to the Carrelhut where we spend the night. This is a self-catering hut and we will have to bring our own food and drinks. Since it is only for one day, that won't mean much to carry. At 2.00 a.m. we start climbing in the darkness and with great probability will reach the summit of the Matterhorn at sunrise. Who wouldn't like to stand at the top of the mountain at sunrise and look down to the valley from above where almost everyone is still sleeping peacefully. After a rest we will slowly descend again into the valley, where we have a shower before we drive home again.
