Gran Paradiso National Park, Aosta Valley

Monte Rosa Massif, Pennine Alps

 

Joseph will climb several peaks above Italy’s majestic Aosta Valley including Gran Paradiso, the tallest mountain that lies entirely within Italy’s borders, and Monte Rosa in the heart of the Alps. It will be a 4,000 meter extravaganza (13,000 feet +) with all peaks exceeding the Alps’ magic number of 4,000 meters – all done solo. Along the way he’ll be staying in the highest mountain hut in Europe, the Regina Margherita Hut, atop the summit of Signalkuppe at 14,941 feet – 250 feet taller than the Matterhorn.
