The first of the day  Sucess!

This was the first peak of a nice five-summit-day trip on Monte Rosa. Ascent a bit tricky due to strong wind and a small crevasse that has to be tackled on the summit ridge.

Highest  Sucess!

Speeded up Zumsteinspitze from the col that connects the mountain to Signalkuppe. The highest point I've been on so far. I really liked the views towards Dufourspitze, Nordend and down towards Macugnagna. Crazy Idea that we looked up from there gazing at the highest rock face in the Alps just days ago and 3000 vertical meters lower. Climbed together with Roeland.

Climbed as the first summit during the solo traverse of the 6 Monte Rosa peaks (Zumsteinspitze, Signalkuppe, Parrotspitze, Ludwigshöhe, Schwarzhorn, and Vincent Pyramid) in one day from the Mantova hut. Strong winds at the summit.

Great ascent  Sucess!

We started from Rifugio Cita Di Mantova (a very nice and friendly refuge) and climbed in perfect conditions ! It was nearly too hot on that day !

I climbed with my friend Netto and it was an amazing experience, and was very proud to stand on the top of this mountain !

Via Grenzgletcher  Sucess!

From the Monte Rosa Hut, ascended the heavily crevassed Grenzgletcher and bagged Ludwigshöhe, Parrotspitze, Zumsteinspitze and Signalkuppe and then stayed overnight at the Margherita Hut. Returned to Zermatt the next day via the Grenzgletcher.

Nice views of Dufourspitze but that's for another day...

Repeat visit  Sucess!

Traversed twice en route to Dufour and back with rgg and Alasdair. Had done same in 1982, all of 31 years ago - don't remember it being so exposed and certainly not the tricky little rock move just below top on the Dufour side.

Beautiful day  Sucess!

Alistair, Mark and I traversed it twice, first on our way from Capanna Margherita to the Dufourspitze and then on the return.

Climbed  Sucess!

Short descent and climb from the Margherita hut. So close to the Dufourspitze (final goal) but ridge was too technical for us, so descended down to Monte Rosa hut and were unable to attempt Dufour due to bad weather next day. Beautiful mountain though!

Route climbed: Normal route from Rif.Gnifetti  Sucess!

I climbed the Zumsteinspitze from Rif.Gnifetti in 3,5 hours, the weather was ok until 11 am, and then withhold clouds. We also climbed Signalkuppe the same day.

Really nice view!  Sucess!

Climbed up right from Col Gnifetti.
Nothing much challenging, but the view from the top makes it worth your every step. Great panorama.

A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.

Traversed from Signalkuppe  Sucess!

Nipped across from the Signalkuppe but missed out on reaching Dufourspitz (this time) due to inclement weather.
