Second "4000" of my life, amazing sight in a beautiful day...
Normal route from Rif. Gnifetti. Historically interesting, but much less comfortable then the Citta' di Mantova.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


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.
