Weisshorn e la corona di Zinal

All round trips | Mountaineering and hiking

Zinal’s crown

The Weisshorn is part of the great peaks of the Alps, with its majestic pyramid which rises towards the sky and masters the panorama. No ascent route to this summit is easy, and the normal route, which follows the ridge, is not extreme but still demanding and long. In order to better prepare, we will make some climbs in the superb “crown of zinal”, which offer panoramic and preparatory rock and mixed climbs.
