Climbed it solo in 1 day up & down from Staffal in the valley (1825m) #nonstopsolo
We had a nice day ascending all the easy Monte Rosa summits but Ludwigshohe suprised us with a strong wind that let us to spent only few minutes on the summit.
A gorgeous viewpoint in the heart of Monte Rosa.
Climbed Ludwigshohe after Corno Nero and before Parrotspitze. Compared to it's 2 neighbours, Ludwigshohe is less interesting in my opinion. Still, a nice little summit ridge and views are exceptional. Another 4000er easy collected. Climebed together with Pieter, Werner and Roeland.
A summit on a day we did part of the Spaghetti tour.
2015: Nice little snow ridge before the summit. Superb view point!
2016: Less than a year later I visit this summit again. This time on skis on our way from Monte Rosa Hütte to Gnifetti Hütte.
Climbed as the fourth summit during the solo traverse of the 6 Monte Rosa peaks (Zumsteinspitze, Signalkuppe, Parrotspitze, Ludwigshöhe, Schwarzhorn, and Vincent Pyramid) in one day from the Mantova hut.
From Rifugio Mantova
Quick training ascent on a beautiful day
From the Monte Rosa Hut, ascended the heavily crevassed Grenzgletcher and bagged Ludwigshöhe, Parrotspitze, Zumsteinspitze and Signalkuppe and then stayed overnight at the Margherita Hut. Returned to Zermatt the next day via the Grenzgletcher.
Another summit "done"
It's an small but very nice peak with the most complete landscape of the area for the summit. The narrow ridge is spectacular.
...with rgg & Alasdair as 2nd of 4 summits we did this day, last being the Signalkuppe - en route to Zumstein & Dufour the following day.
After less than a year, I was back again, this time with Alistair and Mark, on our way from Rifugio Gnifetti to Capanna Margherita.
Fram Mantova Hut.
Fun and easy walk up with great views. Descended down to the Monte Rosa hut and broke through into quite the crevasse. This descent had some of the best scenery of the trip, even got to see a good sized ice avalanche after hearing them all day.
Ludwigshoehe was the fourth and final peak after Breithorn, Pollux and Castor. We had hoped to climb Liskamm instead but it was too windy and the ridge top was covered in clouds. We descended the Gorner Glacier and on the way to Monte Rosa Hut, Ryan fell into a crevasse. The next day I had to descend all the way to Visp to get surgery for a strange illness and we were not able to climb Dufourspitze as we had planned.
Early in the morning it was quite windy, so instead of the Lyskamm traverse, we went past it on the southern slopes. Even though we intended to descend all the way to the Monte Rosa hut, that left us with some spare time, which Adam, Ryan and I used to walk up Ludwigshöhe.
Simply, climbed up and went down. Nothing much interesting. Overall, nice views.
A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.
After climbing Lyskamm Il Naso early in the morning this was an easy summit but when you are there around you just have to do it.
