    Climbing Corno Nero 4322m & Ludvigshohe 4342m

    Corno Nero and Ludvigshohe are two nice small peaks in the Monte Rosa range. Thanks to the their proximity, and their short access from the Lys Glacier, they are easy to combine in a day tour.

    1. Day 1 Meeting with the guide in Gressoney at around 7:00 a.m.

      Meeting with the guide in Staffal around 7:00 a.m. – equipment check. We will take the cable car up to Punta Indren. From there we start to hike up in direction of the Gnifetti hut. Close to the hut we put crampons and rope and we start to walk along the Lys Glacier. We arrive at the Colle Zurbriggen between the two summits and we take a longer break. We climb first the Ludvigshohe along a fairly steep slope and its summit snow ridge. Back to the Col we climb the Corno Nero along the steep slope just above us; normally very good footprints are present. The descent follow the same itinerary.
