From June to mid October

Tagliaferro is an exceptional alternative to the Monte Rosa 4000 meters peaks. Despite its modest altitude (a bit less then 3000m) it offers great views in a very wild environment and an amazing climbing of a premium class rock quality.

From the summit the view is magnificent and unique on the massif of Monte Rosa and the deep surrounding valleys. The North Ridge is one of the most beautiful, challenging and aesthetic ridge of the area. It offers a fun climbing with many steps up to IV ° and the dreaded step called "The slab" up to grade V°. It’s often possible to encounter flocks of steinbocks.
