Left at 4am from the Capanna Margarita (very crowded and at +4500m not the nicest place to sleep.
Climbed the Zumsteinspitze - traversed it (some critical points at the crest). Then climed onwards from the pass to Dufourspitze and also traversed it, abseiling down to the Silver Saddle, befor climbing the Nordend and then walking down to Monte Rosa hut and Rotenboden (another 2.5hrs from the hut to the train).
Had great weather!!!
