Zermatt days!

The Matterhorn from Zermatt this afternoon.

This morning we woke at 4.00 am at the Ayas hut. After breakfast we climbed back up the glacier to the foot of Pollux glad that the cold night had firmed up the snow and made the crevasse bridges a bit more solid! Liz was particularly pleased as today she did not fall into any crevasses. We did a traversed of the Briethorn which is a pretty cool thing to do! An ace day!
