We started in bad weather at 7am reached Margherita after 4.5 hours of climbing. Perfect weather up top and only group (3 of us) to summit that day. We descended into bad weather and saw everyone else turn back. Not very challenging although there were nice views of the Monte Rosa range.

Good climbing to the peak. The day was perfectly sunny but the wind was terrible. It was good to be at the Capanna Margherita!

Arrival in the dark at 22.30! I could not suggest this to anyone. We were not aware (because of the darkness)that the last part was rather steep and icy, otherwise we would have placed an ice screw (like we did the way down). Beautifaul place.

Coming from Zumsteinspitze...nice to get atop a mountain where you may have a drink (expensive)...!

August 11th 2000 – normal route from Gnifetti hut.

The highlight of a one-week-trip was staying a night at Capanna Margherita. We descended the next day via Grenzgletscher to Gornergrat



July 30th 2003 – from Gnifetti hut

End point of a summit collection of Punta Giordani, Piramide Vincent, Balmenhorn, Corno Nero and Ludwigshoehe. Next day was bad weather so we had a pleasant rest day on Europe's highes hut. Unbelievable mountain views as clouds opened again late in the afternoon.



May 6th 2005 - ski route from Monte Rosa hut

Hard trip in mostly bad weather. Long, cold, stormy, but a great landscape on the wild Grenzgletscher glacier, and fine powder snow. We were happy about the shelter of the winter room of Capanna Margherita.

A long day starting in the Quintino Sella hut at 6AM and ending atop the Marguerita Hut in the summit of Signalkuppe at 3PM. Took us 2 hours from Sella hut to Felikjoch and then an addtional 3 hours to complete the whole Lyskamm traverse up to the Lisjoch. From there, 1 hour to the summit of Ludwighohe, another hour to the summit of Parrotspitze and additional 1.5 hour to the top of Signalkuppe. Then a good night sleep at 4560 meters in the Marguerita hut ;).

Reached the summit with a group of seven people. Unfortunately, couldn't stay overnight as one of the group members got altitude sick despite a preparation time of 12 days. Simple ascent, but don't underestimate the altitude.

2200 meters the first day to reach the Resegotti bivy (5 hours) , almost 1000 the second day for the summit (8.5 hours). Exellent conditions with a lot of snow which helps to keep together the rocks. Engaging route BTW
