Any 3000+ mountain without snow in Europe?

Can someone please suggest 3000+ peaks in Europe with little to no snow until late October? I am not really into climbing on snow right now, nor do I have crampons yet. Sorry for the stupid question, mods feel free to delete this thread if not suitable. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Your favourite glacier views or huts?

Hi everyone, I've done a couple of trips to the Alps and Dolomites and am planning a third. I don't climb much on these trips as I'm usually with my wife and/or kids but I was wondering if you have any suggestions for us. To give you an idea of where we've been here are my highlights from previous trips, I love big glaciers and big views :) ...

Recommendations for 4000m peaks -- Switzerland

I am planning a trip in Early September, and plan to take a guided climb of a 4000m peak. I am looking for recommendations for a peak that I can knock out in a day, starting from a nearby town.

My Alps experience thus far has been on unguided climbs:

Watzmann Ostwand
Grossglockner Studlgrat
Zugspitze Blaueis traverse

I feel comfortable climbing up to UIAA IV.

I have been out of the climbing game for awhile, ...

Zugspitze - Reintal Route - Münchner Haus Zugspitze - Reintal Route - Münchner Haus


I'm planning to climb Zugspitze next month via the Reintal route. As the two huts on this route are fully booked up, I'm hoping to stay on the top at the Münchner Haus.

I had a few questions I hoped someone with knowledge might be able to answer? Namely:

- How easy/likely is it that you can stay at the top? I know they don't take reservations on weekends. I'm relying on staying here, ...

Matterhorn Cresta del Leone Conditions

Has anyone here been in the Breuil-Cervinia area and/or seen the conditions on the Cresta del Leone / Liongrat recently? The local webcam shows some amount of snow, but it's of course not clear how that translates to conditions on-route.
