Route Climbed: N-face of the E-summit Neruda Klucker Date Climbed: aug 98  Sucess!

After a short sleep about 1h? we left from bivacco Farmero (read: sleepingbag on rock 1h above monte rosa hut). The route towards the face is very frightning when dark and foggy. Wild landscape!!!

When reaching the face you see huuuuuuuuuuuuge block of ice all around you. At the time the seracs were not so active, but best is to make some hurry the first 300hm. When we reached the rocks it seemed safe. Good conditions made it no problemo to reach the summit. Tricky descent of the E-ridge to the highest hut in the Alps, Rif.Margeritha on the Punkta Gniffeti. Day after we descended over the Zumsteinspitze and Dufour back to Zermatt. Excellent tour....
