Climbed with two visiting friends from Belgium. Interesting ridge leading up to the West peak. Short easy climb in good weather. Descent via the Zwillinggletscher.

From Rif. Gnifetti we started around 06.20 hrs. The weather and snow conditions were perfect! We reached the summit at around 11.30 hrs where we enjoyed the panorama views on all sides! We descended same way down, but a lot quicker. Great route & great mountain!

Solo ascent after traversing Castor from Rossi and Volante bivouac hut. The slope was icy and covered by fresh snow higher up. Getting to the summit ridge was a bit tricky. Great climb in solitude!

Probably the best day I've ever had in the Alps. Perfect weather on a fantastic needle-sharp ridge between the 2 summits. From the east summit we looked down to the Monte Rosa sattelite peaks all of which we climbed that same day.

Began at the Klein Matterhorn station and went up and over Castor. Continued to Lyskamm West and traversed to Lyskamm East. The 5km long knife edge snow ridge was wild and beautiful and required much concentration. Rapped over a serac to reach the Grenz Glacier and hiked out to the Gornergrat. Exhausting but incredible!

Started out from Rifugio Quintino Sella and after reaching the first fantastic summit, continued on the narrow (and never ending!)ridge to the second summit and then down to Rifugio Gnifetti. The whole route was very exposed, at times, just wide enough for one foot..not much time to look around at what I assume must have been just gorgeous scenery! An absolutely amazing climb, loved every second of it!!

Me and my dad started early from Gnifetti, went to Lysjoch, and ascended Lyskamm. After that, we went back down the same way, and went to Margherita.

Climbed it with Frank Haagsma. First we did Lyskamm West from the refugio Sella. Continued to the Lyskamm East - very airy ridge! - and down to the refugio Gnifetti. Conditions were very good.

Fantastic day out with great weather and good fun mountaineering. Would have loved to do the traverse had we been more flexible in our plans. The north face routes look truly sick! Much respect for anyone completing any of these massive undertakings.

Started from Gnifetti Hut and reached the start of the ridge after an hour or two. Climbed over the Bergschrund on the left and went up the face on steep snow until the ridge. From there the fantastic and narrow ridge seemed to never end! Only one spot of rock to overcome on the traverse, then an easy descent from the West summit. One of the best routes I've done!!

Awesome day turned ugly. Left Sella, climbed Lyskamn West and continued on to the Gnifetti hut in deep slush. very hot day and poor planning on our part.

After 1 m of fresh snow we started to climb Lyskamm from Mantova hut. Because of the fresh snow and no track it was hard going. A myocardithis nearly killed me so we had to return 100 m beneath the summit. But I´m happy to be alive and that I came down... After months of regenerating I maybe try the mountain in 2008 again.

mulidivareseLyskamm east: the 30th  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2007

mulidivarese

and then it was the time for the Lyskamm east
Planned for so many years.....
The weather during the last ten days of this 2007 august was very unstable. The forecast just gave us a chanche of clear weather for about 12 hours between saturday and sunday. We left Gnifetti hut at 5:10. At 8:10 we reached the summit by the east-ridge. At 10 we were back to Gnifetti just before the weather turned very bad. At 9 the lyskamm was already totally kept by clouds.
Wonderfull, knife edged, aesthetic ridge. A step into the sky.
and it was mine 30th fourthausant summit of alp.

Wonderful ridge ! But it was too windy and cloudy that day, so we had to give up. Doesn't matter .... I am looking forward to next attempt :-)

We tried to reach the west summit from Quintino Sella hut but we were not on the top because of the too strong wind and because of blisters. :)
