Climbed it solo in 1 day up & down from Staffal in the valley (1825m) #nonstopsolo
Traversed while descending from Signalkuppe.
Easy? Yes, but the snow ridge is superb!
Gaining the summit ridge against the first sunlight was just marvelous.
The most interesting climb of the lower Monte Rosa Peaks. Long descent back to Zermatt over the Grenz glacier on skis.
Climbed Parrotspitze together with Roeland and Pieter. We traversed the ridge from West to East. The summit ridge is just awesome! I really enjoyed this climb. We had perfect weather as well.
Nice traverse under perfect circumstances
Perfect weather the whole week. We ascended the Breithorn, Castor, Pollux, Parrotspitze and Signalkuppe. Slept at the Monta Rosa Hut.
Climbed as the third 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
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.
Came up from Gnifetti hut and climbed up the NE ridge before heading down the W ridge on a traverse of the summits back to Piramide Vincent. Nice descent down the West ridge which was good preparation for Liskamm.
Traversed with rgg & Alasdair, as 3rd of 4 summits we did on this day, last being Signalkuppe. I really loved the summit ridge, which is a quite long snow crest and mildly exposed. It reminded me of the top part of the Bosses Ridge on Mont Blanc.
Alistair, Mark and I traversed the mountain on our way up to Capanna Margherita. The summit ridge on the way up is a bit small, which makes me think it deserves a PD- rating, but my guidebooks gives it F+. In comparison, the route from Capanna Margarita is easy.
All 4000 Meter mountains in Monte Rosa Area in 3 days
Beautiful altitude "course"!
Nice western ridge. Quite windy that day.
A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.
The weather changed suddenly after Ludwigshohe which made it a challenge to find the way and unfortuantely no nice views.
Nice ridge..did it on the way to Margherita Hut. Conditions were perfect and had the whole darn thing to ourselves!
Walked up from our camp above the monte rosa hut, nice ridge
Last peak of the day after starting at the Sella Hut, traversing over to Corno Nero, then Ludwigshohe, and finishing on the Parrot before descending to the Mantova Hut. A great day in the mountains!
