Great summit!  Sucess!

Climbed from Citta di Mantova. Found it to be fairly long walk but great when you arrive at the summit and are at your final destination for the day!

Normal route from Ref. Gnifetti  Sucess!

We have reached the Margherita hut, but we renunced at the Zumstein, it was too cold and the wind too strong, we will go there the next time...

Final point  Sucess!

Our final target that day. After climbed up several surrounding peaks, we arrived at Capanna Margherita quite tired and sleepy. Nice service in the hut :)

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

Magnificent hut  Sucess!

We came from the Quintino Sella hut and climbed Lyskamm Il Naso, Lowenshohe and Parrotspitze before. We reached the hut finally in a afternoon snow storm but what a great hut at 4500m!

Most amazing hut in the Alps!  Sucess!

Climbed the Signalkuppe in 1982 and spent 2 nights up at the Margarite Hut, up on the summit. The low atmospheric pressure was apparent when one of my companions opened a container of milk powder, which then erupted like a mini-volcano, plastering him in milk powder from head to foot.

From the Sella Hut  Sucess!

From the Sella hut we went over Il Naso (4100 meter) on to the Monte Rosa trail. In good but windy conditions we traversed the Parrotspitze before reaching the Margherita hut on top Signalkuppe. Coming next morning there was no visibility and we had to cancel Zumsteinspitze and Dufourspitze and instead delicately find our way down the Grenzgletscher to the Monte Rosa hut in poor visibility. (July 27, 2000).

Fog on the top!

Satuday the weather ws sunny and warm. Wonderfull snow from the top down to Gressoney. But unfortunalty when we left the Gnifetti Hut at 6 AM of Sunday 5th April was snowing and foggy.
In 1:30 we reached the Lysjoch and then.....we wait a while but we were not lucky. The fog turned even thicker.
Then we skied down all the way till gressoney.

Normal route from Mantova Hut thru Piramide Vincent  Sucess!

Gabi, Sev and I left Mantova Hut at 7am. Wind and sun. We reached summit of Piramide Vincent where we took a short rest and then we continued towards Margherita Hut which we reached at 1pm. All in all a beautiful climb and traverse. We slept in the hut fighting the headache with aspirines and water.
