Spending the night on top!  Sucess!

Climbed Signalkuppe as the last peak of our Monte Rosa Tour. We succeeded in Climbing all the peaks we wanted since we had perfect weather all week.
During the week I was already a bit worried about spending the night in the Capanna Regina Margherita due to the height, but on the other hand I was super excited as well to sleep on top of one of the highest mountains in the Alps.
Looking back at it: I was feeling sick all night and had to pass on dinner, but enjoying the evening and nightly views from 4557m is pricesless! The next morning we descended back to Zermatt and I felt fine again.

From Zumstein  Sucess!

We climbed this mountain from Rifugio Cita Di Mantova with my friend Netto and climbed first the Zumstein, and then Signalkuppe.

Very nice climb in overall perfect condition. We had a drink at the Margharita hutte, it was just amazing !

Nice location for a hut  Sucess!

Great views from the highest hut in Europe. As mentioned by others, it was warmer inside than you'd expect!

Repeat visit  Sucess!

I first visited Cabana Margherita in 1982, but it was a real pleasure to return with rgg and Alasdair all of 31 years later (OMG - I really must be old now!). Weather & conditions better than we had back then - an even more amazing place to spend the night than I remembered. Not very comfortable though - biggest problem was being much too hot - surprising considering we were at over 4500m. They need to work on ventilating the hut a bit better - maybe inhibited opening windows by the 2500m drop just outside!

From Rifugio Gnifetti  Sucess!

After our original plans to climb the Dufourspitze and Nordend from the north failed because of an overdose of soft snow, we drove around from Switzerland to Italy to explore the Monte Rosa area from the south. The snow conditions were much better here, and we went over almost every little peak along the route from Rif. Gnifetto to Capanna Margherita - we only passed on Pyramide Vincent because we had already climbed it yesterday, and on Lyskamm East because we didn't like the look of the cornice high on its eastern ridge when we viewed it from Pyramide Vincent yesterday.

Gorgeous area  Sucess!

From Monte Rosa hut. Beautiful views of the matterhorn on the way and we trekked all the way from Zermatt and back to Zermatt on the way down. SPICY summit ridge climb, we encountered mixed conditions-steep snow, ice, steep rock scrambling with crampons. Free soloed the entire route with Matthew Sharples. Descended opposite side down icy chute with fixed lines which were iced over. Using a hand line was a little sketchy as usually these sections would be rappelled. Massive storm and powerful thunder overtook us right as we got down the mountain. We were scared witless and almost ran down the mountain because the air was so charged with electricity, got a bit spooked and I even felt a fuzzy sensation, sort of like a little jolt at the very upper part of my forehead.
