This cache is placed near the Hörnli-Hut. Every mountaineer who wants to climb the Matterhorn on the Hörnli-Ridge route has to pass the cache location.
This is the reason why this cache has got the name "The Gateway To The Matterhorn Summit"
The cache location is the last possibility to hide a cache before the entrance to the Hörnli-Ridge starts with some ropes.
When the Madonna is watching you from the rocks high above, you are very close to the cache.
We wish you a nice walk up to the Hörnli-Hut. Enjoy the tour and the great views to the mountain scenery that is surrounding you!
Small note on cache maintenance: Wir verbringen jedes Jahr unsere Ferien in Zermatt. Deshalb können wir auch regelmässig unsere Caches hier warten.
