4527m. This Mighty five kilometre ridge is a goal to be taken very seriously, particularly as it is notorious for large cornices. The East Summit is 50 metres higher than the West Summit, about a kilometre away with a pronounced col between. A high level traverse of one of the finest ice peaks of the Alps.

From the Gnifetti to Kleine Matterhorn over Castor. No big cornices but quite a long way...
