Balmenhorn/Bivacco Giordano HUT Additions and Corrections
[ Post an Addition or Correction ]
|The difference in height between the highest col betwen a neighbouring paeak and the peak in question, is often used to determine whether or not a peak should be called a summit (otherwise, how many summits on the Grandes Jorasses, for example!)|
I've spent a night in the Balmenhorn bivouac, as part of a traverse from the Dufourspitze to the Breithorn; from that point of view, it's extremely well situated, and a very worthwhile outing.
Worth noting is that there is of course no fresh water at the bivouac - you must melt snow.
