Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2000

From the Sella hut we went over Il Naso (4100 meter) on to the Monte Rosa trail. In good but windy conditions we traversed the Parrotspitze before reaching the Margherita hut on top Signalkuppe. Coming next morning there was no visibility and we had to cancel Zumsteinspitze and Dufourspitze and instead delicately find our way down the Grenzgletscher to the Monte Rosa hut in poor visibility. (July 27, 2000).

A great ridge run with awesome views on a clear day. Pretty airy in spots and a fall would not be nice but not much in the way of technical challenges.

Solo. Nice airy ridge. With strong wind on that day it was not so easy.

Parrotspitze was the last summit of our (Tuomas and I) Monte Rosa Traverse. After summitting Signalkuppe and Zumsteinspitze earlier the same day we took the North-East ridge to the top. The view to Italy was splendid.



We traversed the mountain to start our descent to Zermatt via Monte Rosa Hut.

The upper part of Grenzgletscher was in pretty good condition with lots of snow covering the crevasses. The glacier became terrible when we passed the Liskamm. We were very cautious and progressed slowly probing the snow. Even so both of us plunged a foot into a crevasse several times.

Tired and soaked wet we made it to Zermatt in good time.

It was a very windy day to do the Parrotspitze. We used at some parts slinges and ice screws because we were scared to be blown of the ridge. When it is not windy, the ridge should be easy. It is quite flat and not so narrow, but still not a walk in the park of course.

A very windy summit towards the end of our day. View of Margherita hut on the edge of the precipice is impressive from this summit.

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 ;).

After we had climbed Dufourspitze in the morning it was already afternoon when we decided to climb Parrotspitze in addition - of course it was a honor for me to visit "my" mountain. After that we descended directly via Mantova hut to the Gressoney valley, 2800 m of elevation difference which I would not recommend if you have problems with your knees.

Unfortunately Parrot Spitze was our consolation peak but nice consolation it was. On that day we were suppose to climb Signalkuppe and Zumstein Spitze but did not because of bad forecast in the afternoon. We started at 6am from Rif. Gnifetti. Finally, after Bernina and Vincent Pyramid, I acclimatized properly so ascent was easy and enjoyable. As we reached Col de Lys, Dufour Spitze and Signalkuppe began to disappear in the clouds. We reached Parrotspitze summit in 3 hours. On the summit we were alone, occasionally accompanied by clouds. 'Bad' weather came before it was forecasted. On the descent towards Rif. Gnifetti it began to snow which was amazing contrast to 45C temperatures we experienced on the way to Alagna. I have to come back to climb Signal, Zumstein and Dufour.

We descend to the Piodejoch (4283 m) and climb over an rather airy - but beautiful - firngrat to the summit of the Parrotspitze. When we look over the other side, we see a 500 meter drop of snow, ice and rocks. You don't want to fall here. You'll be having far too much time to think about what is going to happen to you...

Coming from Rifugio Gnifetti, after having climber Corno Nero and Ludwigshoehe, we reached the summit around 10.30 AM in perfect weather conditions.



Then we went on to Punta Gnifetti, where we spent the night in Rifugio Margherita (4.559 m).
