What I miss...

...is a closer description of the ascent routes in this page. Everything else is very good.

Re: What I miss...

Well, it was a "joint" effort at the time the page was created. Cyrill had climbed the mountain but when he posted the page it was very poor. Since I'm very interested in the area (I've been around but never quite made it to Piz Sesvenna) I asked him whether I should help him on the logistical sections. Which I did - everything downwards from Getting There.

After Cyrill died (actually years afterwards) - I fixed the language errors in the overview section but kept the content as it was before. It is his most popular page and I wanted to keep his memory alive - which would have been meaningless if everything had been written by myself.

Now to the route info: this is the only section which I did not adapt - as I never got past two thirds of the routes - though from three sides. So if you have more information feel free to add a route page. Or send me some text which I can add in addition (or replacing) what little is written on the page.

Re: What I miss...

Thanks for your quick and informative answer, Gangolf. There should be infos on the Internet - surely some Swiss mountain pages, for instance of the SAC / CAS should contain a route description. I'll see also myself what I can find. I'm particularly interested to know if there is a hikeable route up Sesvenna, without climbing or ice involved. On the Kompass Wanderkarte there is a red line from the south up Sesvenna - I wonder if this is correct or if an error occured when creating the map.
If the mountain really is hikeable, it's one I would very much like to undertake.

Re: What I miss...

See here:


It is possible but it's a long way to go. I actually attempted it from M├╝nstertal in the south but that was even farther than from S-charl. On the other hand I was young back then.

Re: What I miss...

Piz Sesvenna is not a hiking peak. The easiest routes all share the last section, which is scrambling up the east ridge from the saddle with Muntpitschen; UIAA grade II, mostly easier.

The saddle with Muntpitschen can be reached from the south, from the Avignatal, by a difficult trail (but it's still hiking), or from the north, across the Sesvenna glacier. The latter route can be done from Switzerland (S-charl) or, much more common, from Austria (Schlinig), because of the convenient location of the Sesvennah├╝tte.
