Altitude view by Tardigrade8

Unforgettable experience. Just have to do it again some time. In addition of euphoria for conquering a peak it was also cool that I was all alone on the summit because the top is mostly a siege and is usually really crowded.
But there was a minor problem when I climbed the summit of the Breithorn I forgot to grease the sun cream on my face and I got a second degre sunburn on my face, other than that it was unbelievably wonderful.

The Breithorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps, located close to the Matterhorn. It is considered the most easily climbed 4,000 m Alpine peak.
This is due to the Klein Matterhorn cable car which takes climbers to over 3,820 m (12,700 ft) for a starting point.
The standard route (SSW flank) continues over a glacial plateau before climbing to the summit on a 35 degree snow slope.
However, inexperienced mountaineers may run into severe difficulty if caution is not taken near cornices or in bad weather.
For experienced climbers wanting more of a challenge, the half traverse of the Breithorn crest is another option.
