Program:

1st day
Meeting in Alagna at 2.30 pm at the Alagna.it offices. Control of the equipment and distribution of technical materials. Climb independently in the splendid Val D’Otro to the Baite di Follu. A day of almost relaxation, to begin to climb without trauma to the body, and an evening in a hut, with an atmosphere of the past, where words are a pleasure and silence too (from 1200 to 1800 m).

2nd day
Ascent to Refuge Vigevano via the Zube pass, where the grass becomes moss and lichens give way to rocks, slowly acclimatizing to the altitude. (From 1800 to 2800 m)

3rd day
Ascent to Capanna Gnifetti, the historical point of contact of all the climbs on the south side of Monte Rosa, through the Stolemberg pass along beaten trails by climbers from past centuries. (From 2800 to 3600 m). At the pass Passo Salati we’ll meet someone from the agency who will provide the necessary alpine climbing equipment and take the trekking equipment back down to the valley, to allow the ascent to the highest peaks to be lightweight and organized

4th day
Ascent to Capanna Margherita where daylight hours are unreal and the evenings magical. We will take the time to enjoy our surroundings during the ascent, to discover the peaks in view and dine in the highest refuge in Europe while watching the shadows rise from the valley. (From 3600 to 4500 m)

5th day
Return to the valley via refuge Gnifetti for lunch and a final drink on arrival in Indren, where it’ll be possible to use the ski lift back to Alagna.
