I climbed from Vittorio Emmanuele over the central moraine and ridge of the Gran Paradiso glacier.Great environment, but soft snow without catches along the ridge!I reached the summit in 4 hours from the hut. I used the normal route as way down.

Started at the parking area in Pont and did it in one push right up to the summit. The weather was good when I started. But then... Lightning, rain, blizzard, whiteout - got it all on the way up. Reward - I was the first one to summit that day;)

Bright sunny warm day, very little wind. Could you ask for better? Well crap snow conditions... refrozen slush transitioning into windbuffed satstrugi.

Took three hours and some change for the climb up and around an hour on the way down, mostly because I had to take off the skis and bushwack the last bit in the thick forest without snow cover.

Hey if you do this one, make sure climb the REAL summit. I made fun of a guide that was ferrying 11 clients to the fake summit wit the little Mother Mary on the top. It isn't the the summit and you miss out on the best climbing, which is in between there and the real summit, 20 minutes or so of scrambling away.

As part of a climbing course I scaled my first 4000 m peak. It's a nice tour, easy and very crowded.

Didier and I, sharing leadership, left Refugio Vittori Emanuele II and switched to the Ghiacciao del Laveciau route and reached both the traditional "Madonna" and the actual summit, farther north, in a perfect weather day.

I hiked this mountain in the summer of 1998 as a member of 'Alpine Ram', a 15 man British Army Expedition climbing in France and Italy. It was truly the highlight of our trip. After a very early start from Rifugio V Emanuele, we summited at approximately 11:OOam. There was only light low lying cloud in the valleys, so we had a fantastic panoramic view, with Mont Blanc off in the distance. I would highly recomend this to anyone who is going to be in the area, and are looking for a rewarding challenge.

folaerts

Very nice 4000m peak, our first one.

The normal route was very iced, so we climbed up the morene to the left of the normal route and had a very nice walk up to the Gran Paradisio glacier. Reached the summit in 4 hours and were the first on top that day. This ment no trafficjam on the summit!

The view is superb !!! Mont Blanc, Mont Viso, etc..

Jack and Filiep from Belgium.

Valtho

Very nice mountain in a beautifull national park. The weather here in Italy was very good instead of the bad weather in Chamonix. Our original plan was to climb the Mont Blanc but this one was a very good alternative. Not so high but in a splendid environment with no big tourist attractions! It was only a pitty that the top was very crowded due to the bad weather in the Western Alps. We staid in as well Victor Emannuel and the Chabot hut but the latter is definitely the best one to stay!

A long hard day, cold and windy, but also my first alpine four-thousander. It was a pity not to have more time to enjoy the summit sights, but...

By the way: yes, I shared this climb and the rope with Rafa Bartolome (in case no-one had imagined so)
