Breithorn Climbing Notes

Hello, <br/> <br/>I was planning to climb the Breithorn on sunday June 10, but the cable car that brings you to Felskin and Mittelallanin apparently does not open until June 16th, too late for me. <br/> <br/>Does anyone know what options there are to climb this or another relatively easy 4.000 m peak? I have the proper gear and experience. <br/> <br/>Thanks in advance!
