Afternoon  Sucess!

Ascended from bivouack above Mantova hut via Balmenhorn. Perfect weather, nice views, easy ascent.

No views; normal route  Sucess!

Climbed together with Roeland and Pieter. After summitting Il Naso earlier that day we decided ascend Pyramide Vincent as well before going down. The perfect weather we had all day was making place for a thick cloud cover. When we arrived on the summit views were reduced to a minimum. After summitting we went down to the Gnifetti Hut.

Climbed several peaks in the region: Vincent piramide, Ludwigshöhe and Signalkuppe. Awesome view!

From N to S  Sucess!

Climbed as the last 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. Ascended via the northern slope (normal route) and descended via the SW flank back to the Mantova hut. On the SW flank there was lots of snow on loose rocks, and further down just deep snow, very tiring.

Route Climbed: ESE Ridge / Normal Route Date Climbed: july 2014 / july 2015  Sucess!

2014: Climbed the ESE Ridge starting from the Punta Giordani. No track and lots of fresh snow.

First rock step passes easily on the right. Second distinct rock tower is climbed directly (straight up above a piton in place). Final rock step is climbed directly on very pleasant rock.

2015: Easy climb starting from the Rifugio Mantova. Good acclimatization for what is to come later.

Summited in bad conditions  Sucess!

We wanted to summit Parrot, Corno Nero, Vincent and Castore during the week with my friend Netto but the overall conditions were insane.

There was no visibility at all, it was very windy and cold and about 30 centimeters of fresh snow had fall during the week.

It was not possible to go higher than Col del Lys due to crevasse danger, so we only summitted the Piramide Vincent.

It was a really different climb in that conditions !

Last summit of the day  Sucess!

Last summit of the day after a traverse of the summits from Parrotspitze. Nice to have just a short walk back to the hut from the summit.

Nice peak  Sucess!

It was our second 4000m searching aclimatization for punta gnifetti

An unexpected bonus..  Sucess!

...having climbed up to the Rif. Gnifetti same day, from the top cable car station. As rgg says it was very easy - but a fine view point nonetheless - and one less to do the following day, when we headed off for Signalkuppe.


rgg - Jul 8, 2013 4:37 am Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2013

Easy as pie  Sucess!

With great snow conditions, we went up and down from Rifugio Gnifetti in the afternoon. The very top layer of snow was soft enough that we didn't even have to put on our crampons, but it was solid enough not to sink down far at all. Next to the route were some big crevasses, but on the route itself we saw only tiny ones, nothing to worry about.

From Bivacco Felice Giordano  Sucess!

Walked up in half an hour from Bivacco Felice Giordano at Balmenhorn's summit. An easy peak, with - probably - nice panorama, however the clouds were everywhere in the morning. We left the hut too early...

A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Walked up with Igi.

Normal route from Rifugio Gnifetti  Sucess!

We ascended to Piramide Vincent from Rifugio Gnifetti via normal route over the NW-flank. The weather was not so good...we were constantly under the clouds so we couldn't see anything around.

Normal route  Sucess!

Nice, short and easy climb with magnificent views on the Lyskamm and the other Monte Rosa peaks. Balmenhorn is a nice summit to also climb on the same day.


p-mike - Aug 30, 2010 7:15 am Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2010

Normal route

Easy one-day climbing on a wonderful sunny day!
We reached by cable-car the "new Indren" and after Piramide Vincent proceed to Balmenhorn.
