Route Description

Going from the east side, you can either start from Oberalp pass or the more remote village of Tschamutt. If you decide to spend the night in a nearby hut for an early morning start you’ll probably choose to stay in either the Maighels SAC hut (2,309 m) or the closely situated Badus SAC hut up at 2,505 m) What ever you decide, you´ll hike up the Lai da Toma on good hiking trails. From the lake, you continue up the south flank, passing through lots of rocks and occasional snowfields until you reach the summit ridge up at 2,749 m from where you easy reach the top.
This route is the number one during winter if you go by ski.

Essential Gear

No glacier traverse but a pair crampons could become useful on the icey snowfileds. A rope for extra saftey for the last rocky part.
