The adventure continues with an early morning departure, setting out on a challenging climb of around 5 hours to conquer Punta Zumstein (4563 m). Following a brief pause for obligatory photos, our journey presses on towards Capanna Margherita (4554 m), where we relish a well-deserved rest while anticipating the breathtaking spectacle of the sunset over the surrounding peaks. The day concludes with a satisfying dinner and a comfortable overnight stay.

Day 3

As the wonders of dawn greet us, we commence our descent, descending from Punta Parrot (4435 m) to Ludwigshöhe (4342 m), and from Corno Nero (4321 m) to Pyramide Vincent (4215 m). Our descent includes a stop at Rifugio Mantova for a nourishing lunch. Subsequently, we make our way back to Punta Indren, and from there, descend to Alagna or Gressoney using the lifts.

Good physical fitness is required.

Mountaineering is inherently a dangerous activity; the guides of Monte Rosa, all UIAGM certified, commit to minimizing potential risks, but complete risk elimination is not possible. Being aware of this condition and accepting it is necessary before signing up for our activities.

The Monte Rosa Guides will always give their utmost to assist you in achieving your goals and ensuring the best possible experience. However, it is crucial to accept reliance on their unquestionable judgment during mountain excursions and to respect the decisions made, including a potential return if deemed necessary. Adequate preparation and a good level of physical fitness are required to maintain an adequate safety margin in our activities. If, due to physical conditions or any other reason, the guide believes you are not ready for the chosen activity, alternative options suitable for your level of preparedness will be proposed.


FAQ #1 – Will I suffer from altitude sickness?
High altitude can cause altitude sickness, with symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. These symptoms can vary from person to person. Some people adapt more easily to altitude than others. If possible, gradual acclimatization by spending time at higher altitudes before reaching 4000 meters can help reduce altitude sickness symptoms. Good physical fitness can also aid adaptation to altitude.
FAQ #2 – Are there any medications that can help with altitude sickness?
Altitude sickness is highly subjective, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. It is advisable to bring only the headache and nausea medications that you are already familiar with and have used before. Nevertheless, we recommend consulting your primary healthcare provider for personalized advice
FAQ #3 – What happens if I feel unwell during the ascent?
If you feel unwell in the refuge, we will organize an early descent. If you feel unwell along the route, we will turn back. In the case of severe discomfort, the accompanying guide will alert rescue services, and you will be evacuated by helicopter.
FAQ #4 – Can I join a group if I’m alone?
No, we do not organize group excursions for this type of climb. The team must have good preparation and confidence
FAQ #5 – Do I need to bring a sleeping bag?
No, Monterosa’s refuges provide pillows, duvets, or blankets! However, the use of a sleeping bag liner is mandatory, and you can purchase it for a minimal cost at specialized stores. Click here for more information (affiliate link)
FAQ #6 – Can I rent high mountain clothing and equipment?
You can rent equipment (boots, poles, ice axe) in Alagna, Gressoney and Champoluc. However, it will not be possible to rent clothing.
FAQ #7 – If I do not reach the summit, will I be refunded?
No, there will be no refunds as you will have already used the refuge, guide, and lifts.
FAQ #8 – What is the required fitness level for the excursion?
To successfully complete this program, you need mountaineering experience, great physical endurance and training. Difficulty: from F to PD – glacier excursions and ridge passages .
