See the map for this beautiful ski marathon on the glaciers of Monte Rosa.
The organization of the classic race has decided to ostpone the start because of the very bad weather forecasts for this week-end. At the moment it is not yet decided when it will be possible to start. Hopefully the participants have to wait only for a couple of days. News on www.trofeomezzalama.org
See Carlos blog with very intersting pictures and information during his top tours and trekkings in the Spanish mountains and on Monte Rosa's Dufour Spitze 4643 meters peak.
The Ostspitze (4,632 m) is a peak of the Monte Rosa massif in the Pennine Alps in Switzerland. It is the second highest peak of the massif, after the Dufourspitze (4,634 m), and the second highest summit in Switzerland.
The first ascent was by Christopher Smyth, James G. Smyth and E. Smyth in 1854. At the time it was unclear which was the higher summit — the Ostspitze or the neighbouring Dufourspitze.
The first traverse of the entire summit ridge (Grenzgipfel–Ostspitze–Dufourspitze) was by Richard and William Pendlebury and Rev. Charles Taylor with guides Ferdinand Imseng, Gabriel Spechtenhauser and Giovanni Oberto in 1873. This party had made the ascent, earlier in the day, of the Macugnaga face.
