From mid June to mid September

The Soldier Ridge represents the best approach on this kind of terrain. The easy access from Punta Indren gives you the possibility to climb it in one day.

The ridge, never too exposed, offers a magnificent view of the southern side of Monte Rosa and the beautiful Piode Glacier. It's a great drive test to try hardest climbing.
