Fun scramble and easy glacier without crevasses
Climbed along the Spraunza ridge
A fine ascent. Great views.
With 18 people from our climbing club, a very social and enjoyable climb!
Did the climb with my mother and sister in beautiful weather.
Took my Swiss rock clmbing partner on his first hochtour (alpine mountaineering). Rock part was easy, did unroped, but the bare icy section just after the rock scramble was dodgy.
Climbed normal route from Boval Hut. Not really an interesting climb, although the view from the summit should make it worth considering...just make sure you will have a view...
Beautiful climb from both sides (Tschierva or Boval hut). Moderate but interesting.
Normal route from the Boval hut
traversing boval - tschierva
2005; As a preparation for the Bianco ridge
Winterconditions after the snow of the past wk. Because of this there were not many people on the mountain. Nice tour.
First time this summer in learning (C3 NKBV course)second time with friends. We started from the Bovalhuette or bivouac close to it.
Fantastic Tour to Piz Morteratsch 3751m.

From the Boval hut. Nice scrammbling up to the col. The snow on the ridge was perfect. Then down to the Tschierva hut.
To many people..
As it had been raining/snowing the previous day, we had missed out on Piz Roseg, and decided against an attempt on Piz Bernina (many people made it successfully eventually). So we did an early morning moonshine repeat climb of Piz Morteratsch. We reached the glacier just as the sun was rising. The previous day's snow had generally made the going easier (there were some sections of rock covered in ice before the glacier, tricky in the dark).
Fantastic views (of teams ascending the Biancograt), but also a cold wind greeted us at the top. We met many groups on our way down - the route was pretty crowded as it was a perfect week-end.
Slept late, and only started out from Tschierva Hut around 9. Made it to the top in 5 hours and back down in another 2, during which time the bad weather had moved in. Some sections above Fuorcla Boval were pretty icy.
