I 4000 del Monte Rosa
From € 350
Duration 3 days
Zone 4000 of the Alps
It’s a program suitable for those who want to try mountaineering activities in the summer, at high altitude, among glaciers and majestic peaks.
In three days we will reach 4/5 peaks over 4000 meters and obtain the basic notions to face classic ascents at high altitude.
DAY ONE: transfer to Alagna Valsesia, ride with the cable car to Punta Indren (3275 m) and brief ascent to Capanna Gnifetti (3647 m). The ascent includes a brief lesson on how to properly move on a glacier with crampons, useful knots and self-belay (then, we spend the night at the hut).
DAY TWO: ascent along the main path to Piramide Vincent and Ludwigshohe (4342 m), descent to Capanna Gnifetti again (second night at the hut).
DAY THREE: ascent to Colle del Lys (4248 m), Zumstein peak (4563 m), Punta Gnifetti (4554 m), lunch at Capanna Margherita (the highest hut in Europe) and then back to Alagna.
