The two eastern peaks of the Breithorn Group, on the Italian-Swiss border, taken from the ridge of the Central Breithorn. These two peaks, called Breithornzwillinge or "Twins", reach 4141 meters (the left summit) and 4106 (the right peak in the picture).
The high pass between the Central Breithorn and the twins is usually called "Sella" and reaches 4081 meters; the Breithorn crossing is one of the most appreciated, intense and satisfying alpine climbs in the Western Alps.
