The Monte Rosa range lies on the border between Switzerland and Italy and is one of the best kept secrets of the Alps. Nestled within the Monte Rosa massif are 17 recognised peaks (12 that are over 4000m). Over the course of 6 days you will aim to climb up to 10 4000m peaks including Breithorn (4164m), Castor (4428m) Pollux (4092m), Naso Lyskamm (4272m), Balmenhorn (4167m), Vincent Pyramid (4215m), Schwarzhorn (4321m), Ludwigshowe (4341m), Parrotspitze (4432m), Signalkuppe (4554m) and Zumsteinspitze (4562m). Phew..!
