We meet in Pontresina at the office of the "Bergsteigerschule Pontresina" Here you also have the possibility to stock up with the necessary rental material. The afternoon is dedicated to training in the Morteratsch or Lagalb climbing garden. Here we find ideal terrain to teach you the basics of climbing on alpine tour. Today, the focus is on climbing and safety technology, knots, abseiling.
We leave the matter of rock for today and head for the ice. We conduct the ice training in a practical way on the Morteratsch glacier. Our training content on the way will be: Walking on the rope, crampon, ice axe and safety equipment and a pulley block.
Today we climb from the Diavolezza valley station up to Munt Pers. The training focuses today are: walking on the short rope, belaystation construction, attaching belays on the rock. At the end of today, we relax in the Jacuzzi on the Diavolezza at almost 3000 metres above sea level. Unnecessary luggage can be checked in at the Diavolezza valley station.
After these three intensive training days the highlight now follows. We set our sights on Piz Palü. Early in the morning we start in the headlamp light on the Diavolezza and reach the Pers glacier on the narrow hiking trail. Roped up and equipped with crampons we climb up towards Piz Palü. Over the narrow ridge we first reach the eastern summit, later the central summit.
The descent is along the ascent route. Shortly after lunch we enjoy the well-deserved refreshment on the Diavolezza sun terrace.
The offer is part of Switzerland Tourism's "100 % Women" campaign.
