A night high above the valley with breathtaking views and a fantastic starry sky. Under professional supervision, you will stay overnight in a rock face and enjoy the exclusivity of the Engadine. We sleep like the climbing pros on El Capitan. This adventure will certainly become an unforgettable highlight.
