"The King of Stone", that's what Monviso is called, the highest peak in the Cottian Alps. The ascent of Monviso is an alpine challenge characterized by a significant elevation and exposed sections on rocky terrain, technically manageable witha good fitness level.

Let yourself be amused by every moment of this climb, by its magnificent surroundings and the ever-changing landscape that gradually unfolds, offering breathtaking views from the Lower Piedmont plain to the entire Alpine range.


First Day

Meeting with the guide at Pian del Re at 2:00 PM, equipment check, and ascent to the Quintino Sella Hut. The estimated travel time is 2-3 hours. Dinner and overnight stay.

Second Day

Rise at the first light of dawn and departure by 5:00 AM. We will tackle an elevation gain of approximately 1200 meters with passages on rock up to grade II+. Return to the hut is expected by 3:00 PM.

Mountaineering is a dangerous activity by nature, the Monte Rosa guides, all UIAGM certified, undertake to do everything possible to minimize the dangers but the risk can never be eliminated and must be accepted before registering for the our activities.

The Monte Rosa Guides will always do their best to help you achieve your goals and ensure you have the best possible experience; however you must agree to rely on their unquestionable judgment while you are in the mountains and to respect any decision they make, including the return, if it is deemed necessary. Being adequately prepared and having a minimum standard of fitness is necessary to maintain an adequate margin of safety in our activities. If, due to your physical condition or for any other reason, your guide decides that you are not ready for the activity you have chosen, you will be offered alternatives adapted to your level of preparation.
