Monte Rosa Week – Breithorn, Castor, Pollux and Dufourspitze

A quick report and pics from Lori, who’s been guiding Mark and Russ on this weeks’ Climb Monte Rosa trip across in Zermatt:

“Great weather and conditions above Zermatt – we finished with the cherry on the cake: Dufourspitze 4634m, highest peak in the Monte Rosa massif. And 3 other 4000ers – Breithorn, Polux, and Castor of course!”

So an amazing weeks’ climbing then, bagging four iconic 4000m Peaks around the Zermatt skyline! – pics below from Lori:
