We take the first Diavolezza gondola up and then ski down to the Pers glacier. Here we put on our skins and 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.
