What to do in a week around Zermatt

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:

Friday 24/6
7:00 pm off to Randa (near Zermatt) (10 hours drive from Holland)

Saturday 25/6
Walk from Randa to the Täschhütte (2701 m)

Sunday 26/6
Climb Alphubel (4206 m) and then to Mischabeljochbivak (3847 m) to spend the night

Monday 27/6
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?

Hello world!

Hia, I’m starting up my website again. Please forgive the standard templates and plugins but as you might now I’m not a designer or coder so it’s the best I can do here 🙂

Have a look at my pages and feel free to contact me whenever you have questions.

Ps. at this moment I’m open for new projects. I’m freelance available as a network engineer/architect. Please have a look at my CV.
