Cresta del Soldato is the choice for those who want a curious and fun approach to mountaineering. The mixed route is not difficult but never banal; never particularly exposed and always practicable in preservation without underestimating the altitude, the instability of the rock and its unpredictability. 
This ridge is an adrenaline-fueled first approach, the experience suitable for those who have already approached ridges and want to take the second step.

Program

Full day

From Alagna or Gressoney we will go to Passo dei Salati (2980 m) with the ski lifts. We will walk to the station of the old Punta Indren cable car to reach the southern slope of Punta Giordani which we will climb with 3/4 - degree steps up to the summit of Punta Giordani. (1.5h from Indren) Descent: along the normal ascent route to Punta Giordani on the southwestern side. The route is simple, the slopes are always modest and usually well marked.

From Giordani peak the ridge leads, with block rock climbing, to Piramide Vincent.

Mountaineering is an inherently dangerous activity that can lead to serious injury or death. The guides of Monte Rosa are all UIAGM certified and are committed to doing everything possible to minimize the dangers, but the risk can never be eliminated and must be accepted before joining one of our groups. The guides of Monte Rosa will always do their best to help you achieve your goals and ensure you have a very pleasant experience; however, you must accept to rely on their unquestionable judgment while you are in the mountains and to respect and accept any decision they make. Being properly prepared and having a minimum standard of physical fitness is necessary to maintain an adequate safety margin in mountaineering climbs. If, due to your physical condition or for any other reason, your guide decides that you are not ready to attempt the ascent to Monte Rosa, you will be offered suitable alternatives.
