|Nice hight walking. Very nice day: sunny but very worm.|
We started at 4:30 in the morning from Città di Mantova hutte and we arrived at the top of Zumsteinspitze in 2:40. Than we traversed to Signalkuppe, Parrotspitze, Ludvishohe, Corno Nero and back again at the hutte before 12:00.
A long walking for an unforgettable day.
I suggest to try: long but easy. And very spectacular

|Due to bad conditions on Täschhorn - Dom - Traverse, my friends Anton, Albert and Albrecht returned to Germany, so that we did not try it this year. Instead I called some other friends from the German Alpine Club in Ulm, who just came down from Grand Combin. Within 2 hours we decided to make this traverse, although we all do not like glacier walking, which is the main part of the whole trip, if you want to make the Monte-Rosa-traverse.|
Finally, Wolfgang, Andreas, Michael and I climbed this traverse Signalkuppe - Zumsteinspitze - Dufourspitze on a very sunny day and with best rockclimbing conditions. Wolfgang and I climbed without using any rope.
We started the whole trip from Monte-Rosa-Hut, climbed Grenzglacier up to Rif. Magherita and returned to Monte-Rosa-Hut after the traverse. All glaciers had very big crevasses.

|3 years ago Zumsteinspitze was the highlight of a week's trip. But this time - after two nights at Cap. Margherita - it was only a markstone on our trip to Dufourspitze. Easy to reach from Col Gnifetti plain. The descent from Zumsteinspitze to Grenzsattel needs caution. Climbing back upwards these 120 m in the afternoon was very exhausting.|

|We came to Zumsteinspitze at 11 am and stayed there almost one hour (!) to take a lot of pictures. The view was magnificent - the colossal Dufourspitze, Lyskamm, Matterhorn and Mont Blanc in the distance. Never going to forget this.|
