We climbed Italian crossing, starting from Cervinia, slepping at Carrel hut and going down Hornli ridge. One of the most exhausting climb I ever done, more physicaly than technicaly, all difficulties are well equiped with big ropes but you must have big muscles, even to reach Carrel hut on the first day. Not to much people on the route, 10 on the italian side and 6 on swiss side. start from carrel at 4:00am, summit at 8:30, Hornli hut at 1:00pm, Klein Matterhorn at 15:30, and the last cable car at 4:30 to go down to Cervinia. Schedule too much challenging for my legs...
