We started from Quintino Sella refuge, crossed the Lyskamm Nose, then reached the base of Corno Nero. We climbed on the snowy slope reaching the ridge, then  traversing the rocks to the summit. Some people preferred to cut through the snow just blow the ridge to get to the rocks, but that path looked to us unstable. Great views of the many Monte Rosa summits around, including Punta Gnifetti (4554 m.) with Capanna Margherita, the highest refuge in Europe.
