Jim McVey, of the Massachusetts McVeys, dashed over for a very quick ascent of the Zinal Rothorn.

Return to all recent trips

The sign at the hut, so there is no mistake as to which way to start.


The Breithorn and Klein Matterhorn at sunset from the hut.

Still just below the summit, but getting closer.


Closer still...


Ah, here we are!


On the descent, back down on easier climbing.
