Normal route via Hoernli ridge (NE ridge). Good conditions and breathtaking panorama. After a 3.10 hrs climb, we were the second roped party to reach the summit that day. Descent took 3.30 hrs (slower due to oncoming traffic). An hour after returning to the Hoernli hut, a thunderstorm started to break loose, so it was perfect timing. Thanks again to the excellent mountain guide Harald Juen from the Snow & Alpine Center Zermatt.
