Traverse from West to East  Sucess!

After Climbing the Hintergrat on Ortler we raced (on the same day) to Switzerland, to catch the last cablecar up to the Diavolezza Hut. Our initial plan was to climb Bernina as a day tour from Diavolezza, but the plans soon changed into traversing Piz Palu and so we did. We did the traverse route from West to East. Fantastic tour with great weather!
My thoughts were and are with SP-member Cyrill Ruegger wo tragically died on this mountain..Rest in peace Cyrill!
I will come back for Bernina someday: probably Biancograt.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Spent the night at the luxurious Diavolezza Hut and then had the most perfect day for our climb. The crevasses were huge at this time of year and amazingly beautiful. Does not get any better than this!

Traverse  Sucess!

We started from Rifugio Marco e Rosa and traversed from W to E, then headed down to the Diavolezza Haus.

Imagine our surprise when, on the actual ridge, we met a guy that had a dog with him, on a rope! It's not so much the dog that we worried about, but what if the dog would suddenly pull on the rope? His boss could easily loose his footing and you definitely do not want to fall on that ridge!

a classic!

Climbed Palü the first time at age 11 with my Dad. Like the traverse most.

Routes Climbed: Traverse & Kuffner Pillar  Sucess!

The three pillars make it look like an impressive stronghold.
#1: We made the Palü traverse coming from the Piz Bernina Biancograt with a rest on the Marco e Rosa Hut.
#2: Came back three days later on Swiss National Day (August 1st 2009) to climb the Kuffner Pillar. Took us a long but rewarding day, that will definitely remind in our memories.
#3: This time instructing a DAV youth leader training.

with ski from Diavolezza  Sucess!

It took me 19 years till I reached only the east summit of Palü to climb the main summit. the days before had cold and stormy weather and we were very lucky that conditions turned to the good side on our summit day.
