A ~two hour glacier walk along the Mezzalama glacier from the Klein Matterhorn cable car station to the base of Castor. From there it is less than an hour to the summit.

Descent Options:

Many options for descent. It is possible to retrace and return to Klein Matterhorn station (however, as this is an uphill route on the return, expect it to take up to twice as long to recross the Mezzalama glacier).
