In good weather this is a very easy climb from the Gnifetti or Mantova huts; there are also good bivvy sites above the huts. Staying in the hut at the peak is worthwhile for the experience, as is getting there via the traverse across Vincent Pyramide, Ludwigshohe, Corno Nero, Parrotspitze, but beware to carry enough water as you need more when spending protracted periods above 4000m. Give the crevasse zone above Gnifetti some real respect, and get down through it before the bridges soften on the descent, which from Zumsteinspitze to Mantova only took 2 hrs.
