ALONG THE ITALIAN REGULAR ROUTE
From the end of June to mid September
Dufourspitze, high more then 4600m, is the highest point of Monte Rosa and the second one of the whole Alps. The climb along the italian regular route is an exciting climbing, very exposed on the highest wall of the alps: the east side of Monte Rosa.
The terrain is the classic one of the high altitude ridges: varied with some narrow snow ridges and some steps of solid red rock. Absolutely this climb must never be underestimated.

Technically the rocky steps are never more than III° grade but you have always to move with the crampons on over 4500 meters. If iced, some ridges could be very delicate to cross. You need to pay attention and to have a high level of concentration especially for the way back
