Pizzo Bernina

The ascent of the Biancograt

From the town of Pontresina, in Switzerland, we get back the long Roseg valley, with an amazing horse-drawn carriage saving 7km by foot to reach the Roseg hotel (1999m). In a couple of hours walk we reach now the Tsherva hut where we spend the night.

Before dawn we cross the scree following the stone piles marking the wayuntill we reach the Prevulsa pass where the Biancograt ridge begins. After we have climbed the first peak, the Pizzo Bianco (3995), we must go up and down from some rocky walls, with abseils and climbing steps of II and III, in order to overstep the two towers preceding the top. In about a 7 hours march we reach the yearn top of the Piz Bernina. (4050m)

The descent is along the normal route, on the Italian side of the Mountain, with a sequence of abseiling take to the Morterasch glacier at the end of whom we find the train station taking back to Pontresina.
