This two day trip starts at the Gnifetti hut at an altitude of 3647m (the hut is reached by a 1.5hr walk from the cable car at Punta Indren). We spent 2 nights in the Gnifetti hut and did a return trip first to Piramide Vincent (4215m) in order to acclimatise before attempting the climb to Signalkuppe. Day 1 was a slow climb to the top of Signalkuppe which at 4556m is the fifth highest mountain in the Alps. We stayed overnight in the Margherita hut on the summit of Signalkuppe which is the highest habitable building in western Europe (and it even had draft beer!). On Day 2 we descended back to the Gnifetti hut taking in the summits of Lugwigshohe and Schwartzhorn (Corno Nero) on the way. Following a well earned lunch at the Gnifetti hut we walked back to the cable car for the descent to the valley bottom.
