The Piz Morteratsch is the most beautiful panoramic mountain in the region and stands in the middle of the Bernina massif. The view of the famous Bianco ridge on Piz Bernina and the view of the many spectacular peaks in the "Alpine Festival Hall" rightly make it a much-visited summit destination.
Piz Morteratsch shows two completely different faces. On the oval side, the summit ice field forms a mighty ice balcony with two distinct rocky ridges. From the Tschiervaseite, the summit is less impressive and exclusively rocky. We climb Piz Morteratsch via the normal route from Chamanna da Boval and descend to Chamanna da Tschierva.

Program: Ascent of Piz Morteratsch, 3751 m, via the normal route from the Boval side and with descent to Chamanna da Tschierva.

1st day: Meeting point at 18.00 in the Chamanna da Boval, 2495 m. Common dinner and discussion of the tour.

2nd day: The first part of the ascent leads us over tracks to the foot of the rocks below the Fuorcla da Boval, 3346 m. The climbing is stimulating, and in the upper part the rock is firm and already well tempered by the morning sun. After crossing the Fuorcla, the further way leads over the Vadrettin da Tschierva, which becomes steeper and steeper, but is easy to walk. The descent over the steep summit ice field leads us past the Fuorcla da Boval and over the Vadrettin da Tschierva to the summit. The view will thrill us! After the descent over the steep first part of the glacier, the steepness of the slope settles at the Fuorcla da Boval. At the end of the glacier the steep path leads us in the rock and scree to the Chamanna da Tschierva, 2584 m. A final drink together on the terrace and individual descent into the valley.
Ascent time about 6 hours, total walking time about 9 hours.
