Lower Sections Of Pre-Dawn Rocky Scrambling On The Hornli Ridge

Here a small drilled metal stake is used as an intermediate running anchor point. There are quite a lot of these on the lower section of the route, offering some 'on the go protection' as well as route finding assistance. The pace of the lead Zermatt Guides is usually very fast and most teams may want to follow at a slightly less intense starting pace!
