Took us 1.5 hours to reach the Vittorio Emanuelle hut. Spend the day there and went to sleep early. Left the hut at around 3:45 AM. It took us 1.5 hours to reach the glacier and another two hours to climb it. The final portion (1 hour) is about climbing to the summit wall, crossing the ladder on the crevasse and the final scramble to the summit (II). We kissed the Madonna at about 8:15 AM. Very crowded at the small top, but an unforgetable experience as this was my first 4000m. Bring poles for the trip down to Pont as it's a long way down and your knees would appreciate it.

A perfect day with good weather and fascinating views. We were a group of three, using snowshoes.

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 !

It was so cold (-18°C) that skins fell off the skis and we worked with tape. One of the best powder descents I ever have done!

started 4:00, it took us 5 hours to reach the top (party of three). While descending one of us slipped at the end of the glacier and was wounded so that we had to call a helicopter to take the injured to Aosta. Thanks to all helpers and the crew of the medical service.

We climbed the Gran Paradiso in two groups of five. We started at 4h30 and reached the summit at 9h15. We even had the possibility to go the Madonna. Only the last part on the summit ridge was difficult because of the crowd that want to go to the Madonna. Just this, it was my first, but certainly not last 4000 m peak.
