The climb where technique, mountaineering history and altitude add up in a virtuous mix

The Gnifetti hut, the historic base for all the climbs on the southern side of Monte Rosa, from the height of its 3647 m becomes the base camp for tackling the first rudiments of mountaineering for adults and children.

Excursion program:

Meeting in Alagna at 7.30 am at the Alagna.it offices. Control of equipment and distribution of equipment and technical materials. Ascent by cable car to Indren and ascent on foot to Capanna Gnifetti.
We will face the path from Indren to Gnifetti, short and not too demanding, with calm and long stops, practicing the use of crampons, ropes and knots. Lunch at Capanna Gnifetti and descent to Punta Indren in the early afternoon with return to Alagna by cable car.
