Route overview



South ridge

  • Ridge climb 
  • A long and difficult route, very alpine in character, retreat in bad weather is only possible at great risk if at all. 
  • This route has been upgraded.  The ascent and descent on this tour require good footwear and, depending on the season, an ice-pick (maybe even crampons). 
  • Ask the hut manager for more information. 

East face

  • Inclined slabs or friction 
  • Steep crack or crevasse 
  • Rock falls possible if more than one rope team is on the route.


It is essential to check the weather and snow conditions before starting your tour; contact the Cavadiras mountain hut if necessary.
