Highlights

 
  • Take part in a fantastic traverse across the Monte Rosa Massif.

  • Get to the summit of eight different peaks in the range.

 

Have you ever heard about the “Spaghetti Tour”? It consists in a 5-day traverse throughout the Monte Rosa group. The crossing starts in Cervinia and finishes in Gressoney, in the Aosta Valley.

I am happy to invite you to this Spaghetti Tour. As you may know, it is an incredible traverse among the Monte Rosa massif. Furthermore, during these 5 days, you’ll have the opportunity to conquer 8 different peaks. All of them belong to the famous group of the four thousands.

The name of “Spaghetti Tour” is due to some English-speaking climbers who started their expedition in Cervinia. After crossing all the massif, they ended up in Gressoney. As the Spaghetti is the most typical food in Italy and they spent several nights at the huts from the Italian side, they decided to name the tour just like that.

I can take with me 4 people maximum. Moreover, all the members of the group must have basic mountaineering skills and a good physical condition. Keep in mind we’ll have to face a quite demanding altitude change and walk around 6-8 hours each day.

At the bottom of this description, you can find more details about prices as well as a sample itinerary of the program.

And if you want to join me don’t hesitate to contact me. Let’s organize this trip and enjoy the great Spaghetti Tour together!

We also lead an ascent to Dufourspitze in the Monte Rosa Massif. Check it out!

    We will meet in Cervinia for an equipment check and a short briefing.

A quick descent takes us to the trail that running under the Central Breithorn, the Roccia Nera and Pollux, leading right up the Verra Pass. From there, in about 1 hour we descend to the Ayas Guides hut (3,400 m). We’ll spend the first night there.

  • Day 2Margherita Hut - Quintino Sella Hut

    From the Verra Pass we start the route up the Castor west face. Once at the summit (4,200 m) the viewpoint is magnificent, ranging from the Margherita Hut to the Lyskamm, from Gran Paradiso to Mont Blanc and from the Po Valley to the Swiss four-thousanders.
    The descent will follow a fairly easy trail along a snowy ridge, which leads to a steep slope that takes us down to the Felik Pass and the Felik Glacier.
    At 3,575 meters high, at the edge of the glacier, we’ll arrive at the Quintino Sella Hut, where we can enjoy a meal and spend the night.

  • Day 3Mantova Hut

    For the first 2 hours we’ll walk along the Western Lys glacier. Then we must face a the steep climb to the Naso del Lyskamm. A fairly easy descent leads us to the Eastern Lys glacier, which we cross heading towards the Vincent Pyramid. Having reached the summit, we’ll take the trail to the Mantova Hut (3,500 m) where we will enjoy a meal and stay for the night.

    Today we are going to reach the highest mountain hut in Europe, the Margherita Hut (4,554 m).
    It is a gradual ascent passing by the summits of the Balmenhorn, the Schwarzhorn, the Ludwigshöhe, and the Zumsteinspitze. Finally, we reach the Signalkuppe Peak, where the Margherita Hut stands. Here, we will enjoy our meal and spend the night.
