Italian High Level Route

In recent weeks a course arranged through West Coast Mountain Guides has been run by Mark Seaton and James Thacker attempting to complete the Italian high Level Route on the south side of the Zermatt Breithorn, over Castor and on towards the Margharita Hut and hopefully finishing on Monte Rosa. Unfortunately the weather decided to intervene and an amended programme resulted. However, it just goes to show that with a little imagination on the part of the guides and the help of a Land Rover taxi on the Italian side of the range, success can be assured! Well done guys and thanks to Mark and James for persevering. Anyone reading this blog and wishing to have a go at this trip this summer, please get in touch. Thanks to Alan Irvine, Mark Seaton and James Thacker for the photos. A detailed account of the route eventually followed appears on Mark Seaton’s Blog
