We have had nice but very cold weather.
This was my first 4000er! Beautiful weather, but 15 degrees c below zero.
very beautiful climb
Long day but terrific
Stopped for breakfast at the Margherita Hut as part of our day long traverse of the Monte Rosa group from KM to Nordend.
from rif. Mantova
stayed one night at Ref. Regina Margherita -
Second "4000" of my life, amazing sight in a beautiful day...
Normal route from Rif. Gnifetti. Historically interesting, but much less comfortable then the Citta' di Mantova.
It's better sleeping at Città di Mantova hut than Gnifetti hut
From Col del Lys alone
My first 4000 !!!
On skis from the Gnifetti hut with my brother and two buddies. We did Zumsteinspitze on the same day.
We started in bad weather at 7am reached Margherita after 4.5 hours of climbing. Perfect weather up top and only group (3 of us) to summit that day. We descended into bad weather and saw everyone else turn back. Not very challenging although there were nice views of the Monte Rosa range.
Climb it from Rif. Gniffeti and stay in the Cap. Margherita.
Good climbing to the peak. The day was perfectly sunny but the wind was terrible. It was good to be at the Capanna Margherita!
I started early in the morning from rifugio Quintino Sella and then I climbed the Lyskamm's Nose. The route is not difficult but are necessary almost 7 hours of walking.
Solo trough Grenzgletscher to the summit by normal route with back pack full of food and bivack equipement. I did 4 more 4000m summits on that day.
Started early in the morning from the Balmenhorn Bivouac and made it to the top by the sunrise.
Arrival in the dark at 22.30! I could not suggest this to anyone. We were not aware (because of the darkness)that the last part was rather steep and icy, otherwise we would have placed an ice screw (like we did the way down). Beautifaul place.
Coming from Zumsteinspitze...nice to get atop a mountain where you may have a drink (expensive)...!
