We will leave from Cervinia towards the Orionde Hut, where we will leave the car and begin our approach trekking. A not very difficult climb will take us to the Carrel refuge where we will spend the night. It will be a 5-hour hiking day.
Early in the morning we will begin a demanding ascent to the summit. We will cross the Lione Ridge that is equipped with ropes that facilitate our climb. If we are lucky and the weather conditions help we will reach the summit and after enjoying its magical views we will go down the Hornli Crest, on the Swiss side. The round trip takes around 12 hours.
