Description

Punta Giordani is the lower peak among the 4.000-meter summits of Monte Rosa. Just above the top station of Punta Indren. Punta Giordani is the ideal peak for those hikers that, even with no technical skill, want to reach a peak over 4.000 meters and have an experience at high altitude.

From the summit of Punta Giordani there is a spectacular view on the south face of Monte Rosa. It is a 1-day guided ascent that I organize every Tuesday from late June to mid September. The round tour will take us about 5 to 6 hours. For more details, here you have the completed program:

We will meet in Staffal at 7 am. If you need to rent some equipment (climbing harness, crampons and adjustable poles) you can do it in the shop nearby our office. 
After the check of the equipment, we will start with the cable car in direction of Punta Indren.

From there, we start to walk along the Indren Glacier towards the Punta Giordani. 
During the way up few stops are “mandatory” to take pictures, rest, drink and eat some snacks.

In the middle of the ascent, a small rock is the right place for a longer stop before the last part of the ascent. The last 5 meters are on rock: be quiet and, following my tips, in few steps you will be standing close to the Madonnina, on top of your first 4.000 meters peak! The way down is along the same itinerary.

As you see, the difficulty level is suitable for those regular hikers who want to make a first experience at this altitude. On this kind of terrain, basic rules of mountaineering are necessary, like walking in a rope team along a glacier. The total altitude change during the whole day will be 770 meters.

My maximum group size is 4 participants. Prices vary depending on them:

  • 1 person: € 300,00
  • 2 persons: € 160,00 per person
  • 3 persons: € 110,00 per person
  • 4 persons: € 85,00 per person

The price does not include the cable car ticket to Punta Indren, lunch, drinks nor eventual rental of equipment.

If you want to give the first steps in a mountaineering adventure at high altitude, this trip is all you need. It will be a pleasure for me to be your guide. Please contact me to plan the following departure towards the amazing Punta Giordani peak!
