Tour description

Already at Kleines Matterhorn we got evacuated due to high winds (>100km/h) and found accomodation in the Gandegghuette...

0800 hrs decided to walk up to Breithornpass and down to Ref Valle d'Ayas but due to the weather change got stranded (1130 hrs just in time) at the mountain lodge Kleines Matterhorn.

Left Kleines Matterhorn at 0530 crossed Breithornpass, surrounded Pollux and went up Castor and then down to Ref Quintino Sella 1100 hrs.

Left Ref Quintino Sella at 0500 towards Lisgletscher then climbed the 'Nosa' where we set a few ice screws. Climbed down the other side, crossed the glacier and climbed the Vincentpiramid before making it for Ref Gnifetti at 1300hrs.

Left Ref Gnifetti at 0530 towards the top, past Balmenhorn and climbed Corno Nero then Ludwigshoehe followed by the Parrotspitze before reaching the Signalkuppe (Ref Margheritta) at 1200hrs.

Left Ref Margherita at 0700 hrs to climb the Zumstein Spitze and then down Grenzgletscher to the Monte Rosa Huette 1200hrs and finally the walk out to Rotenboden (1500hrs).
