      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Partner for Swiss Matterhorn - Summer 2018

Recommended Posts

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.

Hi,

Interested in doing the Matterhorn this year. Live just couple of hours away. Some trips before would be great. 

looking for touringspartners skimounteneering, climbing from early February until April 12th. I am from south of Germany few hours to Berner Oberland.

My dream before going home is doing The Twins at Columbia Icefield in Canada. Season for this objective starts beginning of April. 4 days required, camping because there is no hut. 

Have some years of experience (resume) got all gear and have car.

Also open for other suggestions. Right now in Vancouver and from mid February back in Banff.

Shout me a text on that number or call 1(604)3524260

cheers Markus (alias Peterborgi)
