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.

West ridge from Pansera Bivac  Sucess!

Very easy and pleasant climb. We came from the Rifugio Marinelli-Bombardieri, then to the Pansera Bivac and from there to the col at the start of the ridge.

Completing the Morteratsch - Bernina circuit by climbing the Piz Palu from the Marco e Rosa hut and returning to Pontresina via the glacier. Very nice climbing!

East pillar and traverse  Sucess!

Amazing climb on stellar granite. No fixed anchors, just a few pitons on the long ridge. We did a steep variation on a tower which required some aiding on pitons...very spicy! We descended by traversing the 3 summits and down the Fortezza ridge. Very, very long day! (15.5 hours to reach the car)

From Bivac on Pers glacier  Sucess!

Climbed together with Sebastian from our Bivak. There is a nice place to camp at the spot where the normalroute enters the Pers Glacier.
We were the first on the summit on a nice and almost to warm day. Temperatures in the night only around 0 deg. Celsius.
Nice ridges connect the three summits.

Kuffner Pillar Date Climbed: August 1986  Sucess!

Inspired from my previous Piz Palu traverse, I climbed the Kuffner Pillar with Heiner Micko. Lot of verglas and fresh snow. Had to climb almost the entire route with crampons. The steep snow ridge to the east summit is absolutely spectacular. Traversed over to the middle summit and descended to the Diavolezza hut. Hiked over to the Boval Hut the same day.

Traverse from the Diavolezza Hut to the Marco E Rosa Hut Date climbed: July 1986  Sucess!

Beautiful traverse. Great conditions, no wind. Made it to the summit of Piz Bernina the same day while the weather turned bad. Then got caught in a huge storm at the Marco E Rosa Hut for two days.

From the Diavolezza hut  Sucess!

This was an interesting tour up the”Die Weisse Hölle von Piz Palü” (The white hell of Piz Palü). We went the normal route starting early from the Diavolezza hut. Reaching the summit we turned around and got down the same way just in time before it started to rain. I missed the hell but instead I saw a lot of deep crevasses. (July 31, 2003)
