Private tours - Pyramide Vincent (4215 m) and/or Cristo delle Vette (4161 m) in one day
Climbed for the first time by the mineral engineer Jean-Nicolas Vincent in 1819, from whom the peak inherited the name, this 4000 meters can be reached by the normal route with an easy walk on the Lys glacier.
This 4000 meters can be reached by the normal route crossing part of the Lys glacier. The first part of the itinerary is the same as for Queen Margherita Hut, but before the Lys pass it turns west and traverses the slope which brings to the summit.
The ascent of Pyramide Vincent can be combined with the ascent of the close Balmenhorn (4161), on which there is the popular statue of Christ. To reach the summit, a short rocky and equipped wall must be climbed.
7.30 am meeting with the guide in front of the ticket office of the lift in Staffal, check of the equipment and ski lift to Punta Indren (3270 m). Departure to the Lys glacier to reach the summit.
