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....
