Topic - Dufourspitze from Zumsteinspitze - rock/ice gear needed?

Babika - on 01 Jul 2013
Hi
I'm planning on climbing the Dufourspitze south east ridge from the Margherita Hut and back again at the end of July.

Its variously described as AD or AD+ and I'm planning on using a 30m rope between the two of us.

Do we need rock gear? One book says "carry a good selection of cams and wires" but another says "sling only for the rock spikes"

Which of these is right?

And would I need to take ice screws??

Any advice gratefully received....
