We meet at the valley station of the Diavolezza cable car. With the gondola we reach almost 3000 meters and here one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Alps opens up to us. Around the Diavolezza and on the Pers glacier we will learn everything important regarding ski mountaineering, i.e. ski touring with glacier: behavior on the glacier and in the rope team, rope technique (roping up, knots, etc.), crevasse rescue and route planning. Always in mind we have our goal of tomorrow, the 3900 m high Piz Palü. After the training day we strengthen ourselves in the Berghaus Diavolezza.
In the morning we descend early on the Pers glacier, where we prepare for the ascent. We look calmly for the way through the Cambrena quarries with its impressive glacial crevasses. At 3730 m we deposit our skis and climb with crampons and ice axes the last meters up to the eastern summit of the Piz Palü. In good conditions, we also go further to the main summit with 3900 meters.
