Type of Trip
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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
You will need high mountain clothing, harness, crampons and poles.
About the Guide
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!
