Description

Piramide Vincent is an evident peak that is placed under Rifugio Gnifetti. it's often crowded since a lot of people want to reach this 4000m peak. It offers an amazing 360 view on Monte Rosa and it's really nice to ski down

In order to reach this peak you have to climb up from Indren, heading for the refuges, Mantova first then Gnifetti, then up towards Colle del Lys. Although this seems an easy part that can be done with skins be aware that you're on a glacier! Crevasses could be open and you need to cross some. So technical skills and equipment are required!

Once you reach the north face of Piramide Vincent a last short steep part (crampons could be required) will take you to the summit. 3 - 3h 30 minutes total.

Technical gear required! Ice axe, crampons, rope (40m), harness, ice screws, showed, probe and beacon!
