il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: may 2016  Sucess!


After passages in the area in summer 2014 (bad weather / no visibility) and summer 2015 (unexperienced company) without climbing Corno Nero, I passed again in spring 2016.

This time the conditions in the small face were bad. To icy to kick small steps, too much firn to make proper belays on ice screws. I finally soloed the small face by use of a second ice axe of my climbing partner, who preferred to come back another day to climb it in better conditions.

Climbed together with Roeland. Nice short, but steep climb along the Face combined with some rocks to get to the Madonna. Airy summit, I liked it a lot.

markthejockNice little summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2013


Definitely the most interesting of the summits between Signalkuppe and Piramide Vincent. A lot of people didn't go to the actual summit though...and it was a bit of a bottleneck waiting for people trying to down climb.

markhallamExciting finish  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013


Climbed en route to the Signalkuppe & Dufourspitze with rgg & Alasdair. The finish is quite exposed - a good warm up for the Dufour next day.

rggAnother repeat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013


After less than a year, I was back again, this time with Alistair and Mark, on our way from Rifugio Gnifetti to Capanna Margherita. There was more snow than last year, all solid stuff, and there was even some on the final 5 meters which made it a bit easier. Or perhaps I was simply more at ease with the exposure since I climbed it before?

A fun unexpected addition to the day, and as RGG said, it had quite the bit of exposure on the small summit scramble.

rggTotally unplanned  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2012


Early in the morning it was quite windy, so instead of the Lyskamm traverse, we went past it on the southern slopes. Even though we intended to descend all the way to the Monte Rosa hut, that left us with some spare time.
We decided to go up Ludwigshöhe, but because the trail passed real close to Corno Nero, Ryan and I decided to climb that one too. We left Adam, our rope and our bags on the saddle with Ludwigshöhe and headed up. Right before the summit, the ridge was corniced, and we got surprised by the enormous drop on the east side. A very airy summit!

Nice climbing, but too short to be really challenging. However, the most interesting one that day.

A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.
