Started from Monte Rosa Hutte at 01:30 and hiked up the glacier to the Italian hut on the Grenz. Then began a traverse over four summits (skipped Nordend)beginning with Signalkuppe. It became dangerously warm. As we dropped down onto the glacier snow bridges began falling in all over the place. We spent the morning "swimming" over the bridges where they appeared to be narrowest on the end of the anchored rope. Got back to the Monte Rosa Hut at 13:30 very wet and tired.
