The Spaghetti Round is an impressive but quite demanding high-altitude traverse in the Valais, on which twelve 4,000-metre peaks are climbed. Wide glaciers, narrow ridges and airy climbing passages make the tour from the Klein Matterhorn to the Dufourspitze and from there down towards the Gornergrat a high-alpine undertaking that is only recommended for experienced mountaineers.

More 4,000-metre peaks than anywhere else lie here, between the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa, lined up like a string of pearls in a small space. With Liskamm, Signalkuppe, Zumsteinspitze, Nordend and Dufourspitze, some of the highest peaks in Switzerland are climbed on this five-day tour, always accompanied by a magnificent panorama. Partly over narrow ridges, the trail runs for long stretches directly along the border ridge between Switzerland and Italy. Absolute surefootedness and a head for heights are basic requirements here. The altitude, which is between 3,500 m and 4,500 m most of the time, should not be underestimated.

Haben die gesamte Spaghetti Runde Anfang August gemacht. Bedingungen und Wetter ideal. Achtung: Beim Abseilen in den Silbersattel: Fixseil wurde entfernt! Wir hatten 2 mal 60 m dabei - das war Luxus nur 2 mal abseilen und fertig.
