Hello from Zermatt, Switzerland!
Last night we enjoyed a great dinner in town and relaxed from our acclimating days on the Weissmess. We got a fresh hot shower in our hotel last night and then enjoyed a nice bed to catch up on our sleep. This morning we are packing up and getting ready to head up to the Hornli Hutte at 3260m on the Matterhorn. We will try to climb the Matterhorn either tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday. The mountain did get a fresh coat of paint last night with some new snow.
Today is sunny and tomorrow is forecasted to be warm and sunny. We are hopeful with the sunshine out the new snow will melt off the climbing ledges and the route will be back in climbing condition quickly.
We will update our cybercast from the hut over the next couple days.
Thanks for following us!
