Pyramid Vincent (4000m) was climbed by the mining engineer Jean-Nicolas Vincent for the first time back in 1819, and from whom the peak takes its name, can be reached with an easy hike on the Lys glacier.
The Pyramid Vincent dominates the three Italian valleys of Monte Rosa: Val Sesia, Valle del Lys and Val d’Ayas and the view extends from Mont Blanc to the Maritime Alps.
The statue Cristo delle Vette in Balmenhorn (4161 m) is an imposing piece of artwork by the Turin sculptor Alfredo Bai, a partisan during the Second World War, who wanted the statue of Christ the Redeemer as a votive offering for having returned alive from the war.



07.30 a.m.: meeting with your guide at the ticket office at the Staffal ski lift which you will take to reach Punta Indren (3260m). The climb up the Lys glacier is roped until you get to the peaks of Pyramid Vincent (4215 mt) and on your return trip you will make a pitstop at the statue Cristo delle Vette (4161 mt). To reach the foot of the statue, you must do a short climb up a bolted rock wall. The first part of the itinerary is the same as that for Refuge Regina Margherita.
