The Vincentpiramid (Walser German, French: Pyramide Vincent, Italian: Piramide Vincent) (4,215 m (13,829 ft)) is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, located on the border between the Italian regions of Aosta Valley and Piedmont. The Vincentpiramid is one of the secondary summits of Monte Rosa. It lies south of the Ludwigshöhe, between the Lysgletscher and the Piode Glacier.
The Vincentpiramid summit was successfully climbed on 15 August 1819 by the brothers Nicolas (Johann Nikolaus) and Joseph Vincent from Gressoney-Saint-Jean, after whom the peak has been named.
It is one of the few peaks on Monte Rosa to lie entirely within Italian territory and is the fourth highest peak, completely in Italy. It is normally ascended from the Gnifetti Hut at the foot of the Lys Glacier and is rated as PD (Peu Difficile); a straightforward introduction to alpine climbing and often ascended in conjunction with another peak on Monte Rosa.
There's a difficult alpine trail (T6) leading to the summit.
The nearest mountain hut is Bivacco Felice Giordano located 677m/2 220ft NNW of the summit.
