Gabi, Sev and I left M. Hut at 6am... very windy, so a bit scary in the ridge up to the virgin. Then back down thorugh the Glacier de Grenz to Zermatt where we arrived at around 2pm. Beautiful views of Cervino and Lyskamm all the route.

Nice snow climb.

We had bad weather. Normally we would do the traverse to Dufourspitze over the Grenzsattel, but the weather was to bad.

I climbed the Zumstein in 30 minutes from Capanna Margherita. The weather was very nice and the view too. From the summit we went to Rotenboden, close to the Gornergrat.

bradeRoute Climbed: Normal from Monte Rosa Htt. Date Climbed: 28 July 2005  Sucess!


Solo trough Grenzgletscher to the summit by normal route with back pack full of food and bivack equipement. I met 2 Italians on the top, they did it from Dufour Sp. Cold wind at that day, strong sun. The rocky part is worth your every step, I found it very atractive.

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 3:10. 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

flearretaRoute Climbed: Traverse Signakuppe-Dufourspitze Date Climbed: August 30, 2004  Sucess!


A long day starting in the Marguerita hut at 8 AM and ending in Zermatt at 7:30 PM. Took us 25 minutes from Marguerita hut to the summit of Zumsteinspitze and then an addtional 3 hours to reach the top of Dufourspitze. A very beautiful ridge traverse. From there, 4 hours down to the Monte Rosa hut and an additional 2.5 hour and two glaciers to the Rotenboden train station. From there a half and hour ride to Zermatt.

I and Jolanda, we decide to celebrate our engagement in the deep blue of the infinitive.

Started at 5am in the morning, we reached the summit in about 3hours.

Fantastic day, but so cold and windy.
