Highlights

 
  • Conquer a summit of Monte Rosa, the second highest mountain in western Europe.

  • Ascend to Margherita Hut, the highest mountain hut in Europe.

  • Climb via a classic alpine route.

 

The mountain massif of Monte Rosa, part of the eastern Pennine Alps, is the second highest in the Alps and western Europe.

Join me as we ascend 4,554 meters above sea level to the Margherita Hut, the highest mountain refuge in Europe. It clings to the peak of Punta Gnifetti, 1 of 4 peaks on Monte Rosa.

Our ascent is via the classic alpine route on glistening glaciers and blankets of snow.

Due to the relative ease of difficulty this 2-day guided ascent is open to those with less experience of mountaineering.  

Reserve your place now to conquer 1 of 4 peaks of Monte Rosa, western Europe’s second highest. And ascend the peak to Europe’s highest mountain refuge.

What People are Saying about Prorock Outdoor Team

 

I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly recommend you hire this company - for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.
