Next week the 2 ‘founding fathers’ of the Dutch Alpine Team, David and myself, will be in the Zermatt area in the Swiss for some climbing.
The plan is to climb at least one of the classic routes; the Taschhorn – Dom traverse.
Here’s some planning:
7:00 pm off to Randa (near Zermatt) (10 hours drive from Holland)
Walk from Randa to the Täschhütte (2701 m)
Climb Alphubel (4206 m) and then to Mischabeljochbivak (3847 m) to spend the night
Climb Täschhorn and then via Domjoch to Dom and then back to Randa.
The rest of the week we haven’t planned yet so if you have ideas?
