Zwillingsjoch 3846 m Route archive

Dieser Gletscherpass liegt zwischen Castor und Pollux. Er böte einen direkten Übergang von der Monte Rosahütte ins Val d’Ayas, wenn nicht dieser stark zerrissene Zwillingsgletscher wäre. Das Zwillingsjoch wird deshalb selten überschritten. Hingegen bildet es den mittleren Teil der Überschreitung der Zwillinge.
