Short but really fun climb especially if you add in the little bit of a rocky traverse at the end to get to the statue of the Madonna.

Route Climbed: Normal Route from Rifugio Gnifetti Date Climbed: August 6, 2005  Sucess!

If you catch this when there is a lot of snow on the route, it is no problem. A bit steep but likely easy to put in good steps. We were not so fortunate as the top 2/3 of the face was bomber ice. In such conditions, an ice screw or two and/or a second ice ax would be important to have along. The quality of the descent will depend on the quality of the snow/ice. We opted to rappell given how icy the upper 2/3 of the face was. There's a bolt on the summit into which you can hook a carabiner and set up a good rappel.

Route Climbed: South ridge Date Climbed: June 22th 2005  Sucess!

Schwarzhorn (Corno Nero) was a rather fun climb with little effort. Tuomas and I did the South ridge facing the Balmenhorn Bivouac. A large amount of snow this time of year made the ascent easy and fast. We unroped ourselves on top of the snow flank and simul-soloed the rocky part and the snow saddle to the top.

We then took the most freguently used route down and headed to Ludwigshöhe. - May 11, 2004 11:26 am

Route Climbed: normal Date Climbed: 2000-2003  Sucess!

I've been two times there during "collecting" 4000 m-peaks:

August 10th 2000: the final meters were steep but still with snow and good footprints

July 30th 2003: much more icy. It was the only time of the week I had to use my second ice axe

Route Climbed: Normalroute from Balmenhorn. Date Climbed: July 11, 2002  Sucess!

We descend to the Zurbriggenjoch (4279 m) from where we climb the west side of Corno Nero. At the summit there's hardly enough place for us to stand together, so we quickly let Hermann take a few shots of us.

Route Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 11 July 2002  Sucess!

Coming from Rifugio Gnifetti, we reached the summit around 8.30 AM in marvellous weather conditions.

After Corno Nero, we went on to climb Ludwigshoehe and Parrot to finish with Punta Gnifetti (Signalkuppe) where we spent the night in Rifugio Margherita (4.559 m).

Wonderful trip with extraordinary view
