The South Ridge of the Vierge Provides a Good Rocky PD+ Ascent

This is easily accessed from Punta Hellbronner - (depending on the state of the glacier / crevasses) and the route is often, logically linked with the North Ridge of the Petit Flambeau to provide a good short day of varied alpine mountaineering with snow & rock ridges, a glacier approach and variety of rock quality!
