jckThe first of the day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2016


This was the first peak of a nice five-summit-day trip on Monte Rosa. Ascent a bit tricky due to strong wind and a small crevasse that has to be tackled on the summit ridge.

LodewijkHighest  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2015


Speeded up Zumsteinspitze from the col that connects the mountain to Signalkuppe. The highest point I've been on so far. I really liked the views towards Dufourspitze, Nordend and down towards Macugnagna. Crazy Idea that we looked up from there gazing at the highest rock face in the Alps just days ago and 3000 vertical meters lower. Climbed together with Roeland.

jeff74Great ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2013
We started from Rifugio Cita Di Mantova (a very nice and friendly refuge) and climbed in perfect conditions ! It was nearly too hot on that day !

I climbed with my friend Netto and it was an amazing experience, and was very proud to stand on the top of this mountain !

markhallamRepeat visit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2013


Traversed twice en route to Dufour and back with rgg and Alasdair. Had done same in 1982, all of 31 years ago - don't remember it being so exposed and certainly not the tricky little rock move just below top on the Dufour side.

cabouckaert1Climbed  Sucess!


Short descent and climb from the Margherita hut. So close to the Dufourspitze (final goal) but ridge was too technical for us, so descended down to Monte Rosa hut and were unable to attempt Dufour due to bad weather next day. Beautiful mountain though!

mooliczekReally nice view!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2011


Climbed up right from Col Gnifetti.
Nothing much challenging, but the view from the top makes it worth your every step. Great panorama.

A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.
