Monte Rosa is a mountain massif located in the Western Alps, more precisely it is part of the Pennine Alps. We can consider Monte Rosa as a set of many peaks, many of which exceed 4000m. The highest peak of the Massif is Punta Dufour (Dufourspitze) with its 4634m, the following ones are Nordend, Zumstein, Punta Gnifetti, where the highest alpine refuge in Europe stands, the Capanna Margherita, Lyskamm and later Punta Parrot. Also very famous are the peaks of Balmenhorn (or Cristo delle Vette), Corno Nero (or Shwarzhorn), Piramide Vincent and Punta Giordani. All of these are part of the same mountain group and are all peaks above 4000m, 17 to be precise.


Climbing, mountaineering and skiing The Monte Rosa Group has always been famous for the wonderful climbs that can be undertaken there: from the introduction to mountaineering at high altitude at Capanna Margherita, to a much more demanding climb such as the ascent to Punta Dufour (Dufourspitze) or to one of the most spectacular ridge traverse in the Alps, the Lyskamm traverse. Nonetheless, the winter part turns out to be a must for freeriders and ski mountaineers! It is possible to ski off-piste for days without ever repeating the same itinerary thanks to the numerous facilities and many freeride itineraries. Furthermore, with the arrival of spring, you can put on your ski mountaineering skis and reach the peaks of over 4000m such as the Piramide Vincent and the Capanna Margherita, crossing spectacular glaciers and being able to sleep in one of the most welcoming refuges at high altitude: the Capanna Gnifetti at 3647.
