Climbed Parrotspitze together with Roeland and Pieter. We traversed the ridge from West to East. The summit ridge is just awesome! I really enjoyed this climb. We had perfect weather as well.

Came up from Gnifetti hut and climbed up the NE ridge before heading down the W ridge on a traverse of the summits back to Piramide Vincent. Nice descent down the West ridge which was good preparation for Liskamm.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013


Traversed with rgg & Alasdair, as 3rd of 4 summits we did on this day, last being Signalkuppe. I really loved the summit ridge, which is a quite long snow crest and mildly exposed. It reminded me of the top part of the Bosses Ridge on Mont Blanc.

rggA small ridge...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013


Alistair, Mark and I traversed the mountain on our way up to Capanna Margherita. The summit ridge on the way up is a bit small, which makes me think it deserves a PD- rating, but my guidebooks gives it F+. In comparison, the route from Capanna Margarita is easy.

The weather changed suddenly after Ludwigshohe which made it a challenge to find the way and unfortuantely no nice views.

Last peak of the day after starting at the Sella Hut, traversing over to Corno Nero, then Ludwigshohe, and finishing on the Parrot before descending to the Mantova Hut. A great day in the mountains!
