TECHNICAL INFO: During the tour will be possible to climb 10 peaks over 4000m. Most of them have classic difficulties on snow slopes up to 50 ° and just a couple of very easy rocky steps up to II°. The biggest difficulties are concentrated on the third and fourth days during the crossing Zumstain-Dufourspitze and the Lyskamm crossing . Technically the rocky steps are never more than III° grade but you’ll have always to climb with the crampons on, over 4500 meters, along ridge sometimes very exposed. If iced some step could be very delicate to cross. You need to pay attention and to have a high level of concentration especially for the way back.
