JurgenNormal route from Albulapass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2012


Meteoschweiz forcasted sunny weather in Graubunden so we headed towards Piz Kesch. Unfortunatly the bad weather reached us much sooner than expected. Summited nevertheless. No views, rain, snow.. Albulapas - Piz Kesch took us 4 hours.

good view (to Piz Pal├╝) when we started at Cap. Es-Cha. Weather became worse (foggy and strong winds) on the ascent.
Nice and easy via the East Face

joe_akeemfrom Albula road via Porta d'Es-cha  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008


started with 3 friends at the Chamanna d'Es-cha trailhead close to the Albula pass at 4.40am. Reached Chamanna d'Es-cha at 5.30am. Continued after a short break and reached the summit at 9.30am. Back at the car by 1.30pm, just before it started raining.
On the way up we chose the alternative through the east face near the summit, on the way down we tried to follow the NE ridge as much as possible. The latter seemed a little more difficult but the rock was a lot better here.
Conditions: some remaining snow below Porta d'Es-cha. No crampons necessary on the glacier. The first chute in the rock right above the glacier was still filled with soft snow (no crampons here either). No snow on the upper part of the face/ridge. Perfect conditions.

FlachlandtirolerGreat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2007
Started late from the (unguarded) Chamanna Kesch and left our Snowshoes / Skis at the upper end of the glacier tongue. As noone had been in the area since the last snowfall, we were to break path all the way. Esp. the last 150m were hard work as the normal route lies in the wind shadow and therefore was filled with powder snow, mostly more than waist-deep. One of us knew the route from summer & autumn so we found the best and straightest way, which offers only on very short step of climbing (UIAA II).
Reached the summit at 3pm (outstanding views!) and were back on the glacier at 5:30. The rest was an easy snowplod with great panorama.

We saw the mountain only once, then it was stuck in the clouds. Some fresh snow on the upper rocky part, but no bigger difficulties. I must go there again some time.
