Due to the use of the cable car to the Kleinmatterhorn there is only a 300 HM ascent.
The descent through the Schwarztor over the strongly rugged Schwärzegletscher is not difficult, but high alpine with a clear danger of fissures.
The ascent to the New Monterosa Hut with the crossing of the crevasse border glacier results in an additional 300 HM ascent, otherwise the descent over the Gorner Glacier and the adventurous Gorner Gorge (ask for passability!) back to Zermatt offers 2500 HM downhill fun.
