Highlights

  • Reach the summit of Piz Palu and Piz Bernina on a 3-day trip.

  • Discover the wonderful panoramas of the Western Rhaetian Alps.

Description

Spend 3 wonderful days in Switzerland and get to the top of Piz Palu and Piz Bernina. Explore a beautiful area in the Western Rhaetian Alps and discover its amazing landscapes.

Piz Palu is situated in the border area between Italy and Switzerland and has an altitude of 3,901 meters. As for Piz Bernina, at 4,049 meters, it is the highest point in the Eastern Alps and belongs to Switzerland.

This is a 3-day program. On day 1, we’ll meet early in the morning and go to Bernina Suot, in the Pontresina region of Switzerland. Then, we’ll take the cable car to Diavolezza Hut, located at 2,978 meters above sea level. We’ll enjoy dinner and spend the night there.

On day 2, we’ll leave around 4.30 in the morning. First, we’ll go to Vedretta di Pers and then head to Piz Palu. The ascent to this peak will have steep and narrow sections. Once we reach the top, we’ll go to Furcla Bellavista and then to Marco e Rosa Hut (3,597 meters) where we’ll have dinner and go to sleep.

Finally, on day 3, we’ll take the south-eastern ridge to the summit of Piz Bernina and return to the hut. Afterwards, we’ll begin our descent through different glaciers until we reach the cable car station.

In order to take part of this program, you must have an excellent level of fitness and prior experience in the use of ice axe and crampons. Take into account that Piz Bernina is a challenging climb and that we’ll have to rappel during the descent.

Do you find this program interesting? Then do not miss this opportunity and send the request to be a part of it now!

Another option could be this mountaineering program in Monte Rosa massif that I also lead. Check it out!

About the guide

guide profile img

I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.

My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.

The mountain as a playground has no limits!
