Monte Rosa Spaghetti Traverse

Abundant Climbing Objectives And Italian Hospitality

Sec­ond only in height to Mont Blanc, this majes­tic moun­tain ris­es high above the charm­ing alpine vil­lage of Zer­matt. The major­i­ty of the tra­verse is in Italy, where you’ll enjoy four huts along the way that pro­vide excel­lent food (you guessed it — pas­ta) and a warm bed. With light packs, an abun­dance of climb­ing objec­tives (yes, ten 4000-meter / 13,000-foot peaks are at your fin­ger­tips), and Ital­ian hos­pi­tal­i­ty, this trip is per­fect for advanced begin­ner-inter­me­di­ate lev­el moun­taineers look­ing for a chal­leng­ing yet deca­dent climb­ing vacation.

Flight Information

Unlike most Moun­tain Mad­ness inter­na­tion­al trip itin­er­aries, which include trav­el time to and from your des­ti­na­tion, our Alps sched­ules begin on the first day of ser­vice in country.

You will need to stay at a hotel or hos­tel of your choice dur­ing the trip and need to make these arrange­ments through your trav­el agent or on your own. Moun­tain Mad­ness will reserve huts for your climb, but you will be respon­si­ble to pay for them upon arrival to the hut.

Spaghet­ti Traverse



Depending on the objective, climbers should be comfortable on steeper snow/ice slopes and/or 5.5-5.7 rock climbing experience. You should have a past climbing experience with proven skills. Certain climbs may require only snow/ice skills, but not require rock skills; and vice-versa.
