Marco, an IFMGA mountain guide, is waiting for you in the Pennine Alps to climb Punta Giordani (4046m). Enjoy with him a full day of amazing sights and climbing.
The Pennine Alps are crowned by an astonishing massif known as Monte Rosa, surrounded by several snowy peaks. One of them, Punta Giordani (4046m), is the lower of the 4000 m peaks and therefore, ideal for beginners.
It is located just above the top station of Punta Indren, our stop with the cable car. Afterwards, we will walk along the neverending whiteness of the Indren glacier while admiring its eternal snows, taking pictures and resting for a bit.
The few final meters will be on rock, but do not worry: it will be easier than it will look! Before you know it, you will be standing next to the Madonnina (the virgin Mary statue), at the top of the mountain.
As we said before, beginners should try this challenge. It will not be as difficult as a 4000 m peak should be, but it will not be easy either! Book this trip now and get to experience it.
I also offer other programs in the area, in case you are interested. For example, you could try this ascent to Dufourspitze, the highest peak in Switzerland.
You will need high mountain clothing, harness, crampons and poles.
I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.
My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.
The mountain as a playground has no limits!
We had an amazing climbing experience which was primarily duw to the excellent and experienced guide (Marco and Paolo). High calibre individuals wgo really care about the group’s well being and pushing the tea. To their limits in a good way. The only comment we have is the primitive toilet facilities and lack of water to wash up at Margerita hutte.
Our guide was Pietro and not marco like we initially thought. Pietro was awesome, it is all about his clients and most importantly safety. We did two runs and it was an incredible experience. Guide is a must to explore the hidden spots because Monterosa ski is massive.
PAOLO was an amazing guide. This trip was the “craziest” experience of our groups lives. We saw incredible terrain, had great snow, and challenged ourselves. Highly recommend
We had a fablupus day. We were initially booked with Marco but due to the weather we went later in the week and Marco wasn\'t available. We had another guide called Paolo Tombini and he was very good, very professional and good company.
