Route Climbed: from Rif. Gnifetti Date Climbed: August 13th 2003  Sucess!

It was beautiful afternoon climb after reaching Rif. Gnifetti. Sunny weather with cumulus clouds for decoration. On the Lys glacier there are many exposed crevasses due to the lack of snow. Some are over 30m deep and we walked over narrow snowy bridges to cross them, very exciting stuff. But since weather was warm and bridges soft we had to secure each other on some of the more exposed crosses. Just two days after Piz Bernina I had very tired legs so summit pyramid wasn't very enjoyable. View from the summit was fantastic as I watched Mont Blanc in the distance, on the same date we climbed it last year. Both on the way up and down we witnessed some amazing rock falls, especially on Lyskamm! Also while we were standing on the summit there was thundering rock fall down the south face of Parrot Spitze. Imagine tons of rock falling down the 800m high face.

Route Climbed: normal Date Climbed: 1999 August  Sucess!

We started from the highest parking lot of Gressoney valley with heavy backpacks. Camped approx. at 2700m. Next day we had a bad weather so decided to stay at Mantova hut. On the third day we estabilished a camp next the rock above Gnifetti hut, and climbed Vincent. Due to the lack of training, and the altitude I sufferded from AMS, so finally this summit was the only achivement of our plans to climb some 4000s in the area.

Route Climbed: Normalroute from Rifugio Quitino-Sella. Date Climbed: July 11, 2002  Sucess!

From Rifugio Quintino-Sella we traverse the Ghiacciaio del Felik in north eastern direction, keeping the rockwall just below the Felikjoch at our left. We then arrive at the Ghiacciaio del Lis, where we climb just far enough until we can continue on the big plateau to the east. At the base of the Naso del Liskamm then, we start to climb, staying on the right side where it is less steep, until we reach the summit.



We descend again to the glacierplateau (4000 m) and walk to the Colle Vincent (4087 m). It's up and down the mountain, part of it doggy style, and particularly on the way down I've got to watch out for Jeroen's enthusiastically flying feet (with crampons) not hitting my skull...

Little more than a snow plod but worth it for the great views. Walked up from the Gnifetti Hut which was quite comfortable. We chose to climb in this area because of poor weather in Chamonix. Took a great picture of Lyskam from the top.

Route Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 8 July 2002  Sucess!

We reached the summit around 10.30 AM in rather bad weather conditions. View was reduced to the minimum (visibility of max. 25 m).



Before we had passed over Nase de Lyskam.



We went on to the rifugio Gnifetti where we were forced to stay for 2 days due to snow and mist.
