Description

Situated in southeastern Switzerland and renowned as one of the most famous granite faces in all of the Alps, the North Ridge of Piz Badile is a must-do for any serious climber!

After meeting up either at the parking lot in Bodo or the Sasc Furä hut, which is a short hike away, we will discuss our plans for the following day’s ascent and spend the evening relaxing.

Getting up early the next morning, we will begin our climb up the peak’s North Ridge on a mix of slopes and ridges, rated from UIAA III to IV with a few places of IV+.

We will finish the ascent with a climb up the famed Cassin Route. Enjoy the feeling of climbing this pure granite wall as you go. You’ll find few others like it anywhere else!

After about 7 hours of climbing, we will reach the summit. We will spend a bit of time here enjoying the views before we begin our descent back down the south side of the mountain, in Italy, to the Gianetti Hut and then on down to Bagni del Masino. From here, we will return to Bondo via taxi.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for some of the best granite climbing around as we ascend the North Ridge of Piz Badile from Bondo, Switzerland!

If you like the look fo this trip, but want to try out something just as scenic with a bit less intensity, then I think you will also enjoy my easy day of rock climbing on Schober-Frauenkopf, near Salzburg!

About the guide

guide profile img

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.
