      Ice training with mit Piz Palü 3899m

      Day 1
      Morteratsch- or Persgletscher

      We learn how to walk with crampons, how to use the ice axe, the most important knots and how to behave on a rope team. After this instructive day we rest in the mountain house Diavolezza. During the dinner we enjoy the wonderful view of our summit goal of tomorrow.
      The ice formation takes place either on the Pers- or on the Morteratsch glacier, depending on the conditions.

      Day 2
      Piz Palü

      After a hearty breakfast, we set off early in the morning for Piz Palü. Via a narrow hiking trail we reach the Pers glacier. Here we rope up and walk up the glacier with crampons. We meander through a crevasse zone before reaching the so-called "Schnapsboden" further up. A wonderful resting place, before it now continues steeper ascending up to the ridge shoulder on approx. 3750 meters. After a short snack we continue our ascent, first climbing a steeper snow slope, then on a narrow snow ridge to the eastern summit of Piz Palü (3882m). Now the slightly higher central peak (3900m) is not far away.
      We descend on the same route and shortly after noon we are back on the sun terrace of the Diavolezza.

      On the tour to the Piz Palü we can apply all our learned skills and practice them again. The tour becomes more and more challenging towards the top. This increase is ideal to intensify everything you have learned.

      In 1866, the Englishman Kenelm Edward Digby with his guide Peter Jenny and a carrier managed the first secured ascent of the Palü Main Summit. Before that, Oswald Heer, Peter Flury and Meuli with the mountain guides Johann Madutz and the "King of Bernina" Gian Marchet Colani probably only reached the eastern summit of the mountain on 12 August 1835. The first crossing of the summit ridge was made by the guides Hans and Christian Grass with Albert Wachtler, Wallner and Georg coming from the Bellavista side on 22 July 1868.
