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.

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.

Easy snowplod  Sucess!

This did not feel like a PD like the guidebook said, very easy on snow all the way from camp at the base of the mountain about 100 meters above Gnifetti hut.

From Mantova Hut - SW - SE ridge  Sucess!

At 7am Gabi, Sev and I left the hut. Very windy but sunny. Interesting ridge, mix rock & snow, with final snow corridor to get to the summit.
Margherite Hut was waiting for us yet a bit far !

Route Climbed: normal (north face)  Sucess!

We started at 6:00 am at Rifugio Vigevano (2864 m), at 14:00 pm we reached the summit and at 19:00 pm we were back in Vigevano hut. It was 13 hours round trip, but we were walking slowly, to enjoy the trip. The Lys glacier was still OK during the ascend, but when we were descending, it was melted and difficult to walk on.

Route Climbed: Normal route from Punta Indren  Sucess!

Climbed Piramide Vincent in a 4½ hours roundtrip from the cable car at Punta Indren. The weather was very hot. Only wore a base layer all the way to the summit. Basic snow plod with some rock scrambling (with fixed ropes) before reaching the Gnifetti hut.

Route Climbed: Cresta del Soldato Date Climbed: June 22th 2005  Sucess!

After topping the Piramide Vincent earlier in the morning by the normal route we descended the South-West flank to Punta Giordani.

From there Tuomas wanted to do a couloir climb on the flank and I wanted to do the Cresta del Soldato. So we soloed the personally preferred routes.

Cresta del Soldato was beautiful! Rock was really good and sound and the route was easy to follow. The exposure was pretty wild occasionally.
