Normal route from Albulapass  Sucess!

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.

normal route from Es-Cha (June 2011)   Sucess!

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

from Albula road via Porta d'Es-cha  Sucess!

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.
