|Mathias Zehring||Route Climbed: SE ridge from P. Giordani Date Climbed: July 30th 2003|
|It is amazing: hundreds of people are walking up the glacier from Rif. Gnifetti in the morning. No one execpt us three climbed Punta Giordani (4046 m, it is the E-shoulder of Pir. Vincent and sometimes - falsely - considered to be an own summit). We climbed the SW ridge of Pir.Vincent up to 3800 m, crossed the flank (some loose rocks) down to Indren glacier and on that with crampons we climbed P. Giordani. The ridge from there to Pir. Vincent was more difficult than described, some parts are surely UIAA III and we had to belay. So I would rate this at least with G4 at the Munter scale.|

|Lud||Route Climbed: normal Date Climbed: 1999 August|
|We started from the highest parking lot of Gressoney valley with heavy backpacks. Camped approx. at 2700m. Next day we had a bad weather so decided to stay at Mantova hut. On the third day we estabilished a camp next the rock above Gnifetti hut, and climbed Vincent. Due to the lack of training, and the altitude I sufferded from AMS, so finally this summit was the only achivement of our plans to climb some 4000s in the area.|

|FredO||Route Climbed: Normalroute from Rifugio Quitino-Sella. Date Climbed: July 11, 2002|
|From Rifugio Quintino-Sella we traverse the Ghiacciaio del Felik in north eastern direction, keeping the rockwall just below the Felikjoch at our left. We then arrive at the Ghiacciaio del Lis, where we climb just far enough until we can continue on the big plateau to the east. At the base of the Naso del Liskamm then, we start to climb, staying on the right side where it is less steep, until we reach the summit.|
We descend again to the glacierplateau (4000 m) and walk to the Colle Vincent (4087 m). It's up and down the mountain, part of it doggy style, and particularly on the way down I've got to watch out for Jeroen's enthusiastically flying feet (with crampons) not hitting my skull...

|Chamonix Man||Route Climbed: Normal route Date Climbed: August 200|
|Little more than a snow plod but worth it for the great views. Walked up from the Gnifetti Hut which was quite comfortable. We chose to climb in this area because of poor weather in Chamonix. Took a great picture of Lyskam from the top.|

|Gertiño||Route Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 8 July 2002|
|We reached the summit around 10.30 AM in rather bad weather conditions. View was reduced to the minimum (visibility of max. 25 m).|
Before we had passed over Nase de Lyskam.
We went on to the rifugio Gnifetti where we were forced to stay for 2 days due to snow and mist.
