Highest 3000er in the Alps Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2017
Climbed Piz Zupo from Rif. Marco e Rosa after traversing Piz Argient. Climbed up the West ridge from Fuorcla dal Zupo. Climbing in grade II UIAA, but lots of loose rock on the ridge. Traversed the summit and rapelled down the west face back onto the glacier. From the glacier back down the Fortezzagrat & over the glacier back to Diavolezza.
It's funny to realize some 50 years ago Piz Zupo still was considered as the 2nd 4000 meter peak in the entire Eastern Alps.. now it is "only" the highest 3000-meter peak in the Alps, and sees only a handful of visitors.
