Thanks to Oyvind Lind Petersen for adding this peak.
From Zermatt take the cableway to Kleine Matterhorn - 3800m. From here it takes two hours nice walking on the glacier in south-east direction before the 90 minutes climb begin. The climb is mostly 1 with some parts of 2. Snow to 50 degree. This mountain is more demanding than the nearby mountains Castor and Breithorn because some parts of the climb here are exposed.
A alternative is the Italian way from Mezzalama Hut.
