My first 4000-er, it was a long trip, but at the end it was it all worth. We had good weather and a great view at the summit.

Our first 4000. With my wife and 13 years old son we started at 6 am from a tent just above the hut. Reached the summit at 13.30 in excellent weather. We were the last team this day, alone at the top.

esturaRoute Climbed: Normal route from Rif. Vittorio Emanuele Date Climbed: september 1984 and august 1992  Sucess!
Of the first time I climbed the mountain I remember the crowd, on the trail and on the few rock steps. Luckily, the second time I was there it was after a storm, so there were very few people attempting the mountain in the cold conditions and fresh snow. The view was very nice, exteding towards Monviso and Argentera. In the second climb, in the night I thought I had lost the path, since I remembered the glacier starting just after the moraine: I was shocked in seeing how much it had retired in only a few years.

Started at the valley (Pont, 1960m) at about 7:15.

Didn’t get much further then the Becca di Montcorve due loose crampons.

I had to return at 12:30.

Very good experience and good weather too.

Nice easy tour on snowhoes (or better tourski) in the spring. Very cold and hard wind at the time.

Great view.

With my family (wife and two sons, 18 and 15) we started after a sleepless night in Pont at 10:30 a.m., reaching comfortably the Victor Emmanuel hut and there deciding to make it to the top. As the day was long enough, we made it without major problems. (See also the trip report.)

First 4000er, left at 4.30 and reached the summit at around 9.30. We did not get to the Madonna due to the amount of people on the mountain. Magnificent weather !
