      Day 1
      Piz Zupò

      Early in the morning we start in the headlamp light on the Diavolezza and first descend on the Persgletscher. Via this glacier we reach Gemsfreiheit and the foot of Fortezzagrat. We climb over these rocks easily. We continue in the snow over the Bellavista terrace. A short descent and then we turn left in the direction of Piz Zupò and finally see it. Now it is not so far any more until we stand on the great summit. The same path takes us back to Diavolezza.

      History

      Piz Zupò, at 3996 metres above sea level, is the second highest peak in the Bernina Group and the Eastern Alps (after neighbouring Piz Bernina). The border summit between Switzerland and Italy is located south of the Upper Engadine between Piz Argient in the west and Bellavista in the northeast. Its name comes from the Rhaeto-Romanic idiom Puter and means "hidden summit" - in the north it is hidden by the Bellavista, so that it can only be seen at close range. Piz Zupò is considered the highest three-thousand-metre peak in the Alps. Piz Zupò was first climbed from Pontresina on 9 July 1863 over the Morteratsch Glacier. L. Enderlin, the priest Otto Serardy and a hunter named Padrutt belonged to the successful rope team. On the summit they left a strip of paper with their names under a plate.
