in the

Zermatt region of the Swiss Alps


The Weisshorn is a 3-ridged pyramid and is one of the most beautiful peaks of the European Alps. The normal route ( PD+ ) is via the East Ridge and is physically and technically demanding, with a tricky and exposed rock ridge. The Weisshorn summit ridge is a snow / ice slope up to 45 degrees. The vertical gain to the summit from the Weisshorn Hut is 1600 metres. The ascent requires 2 or 3 days from Zermatt / Tasch.  Because of the difficulties and the long distance to the summit the Weisshorn is less frequently attempted than other 4000 metre peaks.
