From Diavolezza Hut to Marco e Rosa Hut. A superb route!
With Jan, Karl Gunnar. From Marco Rosa ut to Diovolezza
Had done the Biancograt the previous day and stayed in Marco e Rosa hut. Did the traverse,and I continued down to the train station Diavollezza.
we did the traverse from Diavolezza to Rifugio Marco e Rosa. It was that special hot summer 2003 and we were lucky: it was one of the last days that year that a huge snow brigde leading over an ever huger crevasse was intact. The crevasse blocked the whole Cambrena ice fall and some days later the route was officially closed because the snow bridge broke down.
I was impressed by the huge crevasses on the Palü main summit. A great and thrilling traverse, to be recommended.
I remember that it was hot that summer ... but perhaps that was because I was in Greece around that time ;-).
A good day out - in fact it was the end of a week there.
With Hermann as our guide, the four of us traversed from west to east. We left at 6 in the morning from Rifugio Marco e Rosa, and arrived at Berghaus Diavolezza between 2 and 3 in the afternoon.
We made good time to the summit of Palü, but after that we had plenty of breaks to enjoy the scenery.
