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.

West to East traverse from Quentino Sella hut to Punta Indren lift. Simply ace day. Best direction as West slope icy and East ridge stepped.

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

Glorious long narrow ridge. Hermann Berie guides. Spaghetti circuit. From Rif Quintino Sella and on to Rif Gnifetti.
