We meet for dinner at the Berghaus Diavolezza.
Early in the morning we leave for the Pers Glacier. We climb under the spell of the Piz Palü to the Gemsfreiheit and just below the Fortezza. A short descent leads us to the "Buuch". Back on the ascent, we make our way between the many crevasses. This section is one of the highlights of this tour. After leaving the "Buuch" behind us, we continue to climb towards the Spalla ridge. Where we make the ski depot there depends on the current conditions. In about two hours we now climb Piz Bernina via the Spalla ridge. Here we can expect a short climb in the third degree. If the firn conditions are good, we can also bypass this rock step. From Piz Bernina we enjoy a unique panorama, from the Valais and Bernese Alps to the Ortler.
The descent takes us back more or less the same way. If the snow conditions are good, we drive to the Morteratsch railway station. If conditions do not allow it, we take the opposite ascent to Diavolezza.
