Piramide Vincent is the most southern of the 4000 meter peaks of the Monte Rosa massif. It is lower than other peaks on the main crest, but has more relief. It can be climbed by any of several basic snow climbing routes, and is a popular acclimatization summit given its close proximity to the Gnifetti Hut, just 2.5 hours of climbing via the Northwest Flank.
