It was a long snow shoe walk from the Mantova hut. But this April trip was great. Very nice summit in the hart of the Monte Rosa massif

Nice snow climb.

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

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

After a cup of hot chocolate at the Margerita Hut Tuomas and I made it to the summit of Zumsteinspitze. The ridge was easy and very beautiful.



From the summit we had a good view to the route to the Dufouspitze. We had tryied to make a traverse from Dufour to Zumstein a couple of weeks earlier but had to turn back because of the awful snow conditions.

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.

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.
