Finally we are on our way to the Signalkuppe, where the highest hut in Europe - the Rifugio Regina Margherita - is located. We walk via the Seserjoch (4296 m), speeding up when in the fall line of a huge ice mass, which is bound to fall some time in the future. Hermann heightens our alertness by telling us which way to run if it really should fall...

Suddenly we find ourselves at the summit and quite near the refugio! I am exhilarated, my smile is too big to fit on my face, I made it, we've made it! I can't believe that my body could endure this. The last two of this days' seven summits I climbed on character rather than on strength. I feel great.

Coming from Rifugio Gnifetti, after having climbed Corno Nero, Ludwigshoehe and Parrot we reached the summit around 12 AM in perfect weather conditions. Wonderful view on Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Gran Paradiso and many more.

We spent the night in Rifugio Gnifetti. Nice place to stay but try to avoid staying there on Thursday (most busy day of the week). When we were there, over 60 people were staying there, making it very crowded and less pleasant.

Definitely worthwile to get up for the sunrise.

The highest hotel in the world?

Easy peak, but with a brilliant view! Don't go there if you have not alt least spent 2 nights at 3000m before or you will regret it...

Best regards,
