Hi all, looking for some info on the Nez de Zmutt route. Unfortunately my French sucks and most of the write ups are in French. Anyone got any information in English you are willing to share? Current route descriptions, current route conditions or tr's all would be helpful thanks. Note: Interested in Zmutt not any of the other ridges.
I am going to be in Switzerland on a family trip in the summer of 2018, anywhere between mid-July to sometime in August. I am really hoping to be able to climb a little by coming early or staying late. I have always wanted to climb the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. Is anyone interested in meeting up there for such a climb? For the Matterhorn, I am particularly interested in ascending the less crowded Liongrat/SW Ridge (AD+ III+ (5.3+)) from Italy, and then descending the standard Hornligrat Ridge (AD- III- (5.3)) into Switzerland. You can link the start/finish of these two routes via trams and a short bit of easy glacier hiking. Although I am open to other suggestions. I currently live in Salt Lake City, so if you're from the PNW and want to escape the weather to southern Utah, or to climb ice around SLC and Ouray, we could always climb together first. Or in the early part of summer I could see myself heading out that way for some climbs.
