2nd day:

Chamanna Jenatsch – Piz Laviner 3136m – Chamanna d’Es-cha

To reach the high valley of Vadret Laviner, we have to traverse the steep flank of Crasta Jenatsch at the beginning. Thus we reach the wide slopes that lead to Fuorcla 3000m. Just before reaching the Fuorcla, we turn left to climb directly to the ski depot. We then manage the remaining meters to the remote summit on foot. The descent passes by the foot of Piz Laviner. Through some small couloirs down to Alp Mulix 2231m and further along the valley floor to the station of Naz 1746m. In Preda we board the Rhaetian Railway and travel about 40min to Madulain 1680m in the Engadine. From the train station we climb through the beautiful Val’Müra to the Chamanna d’Es-cha high 2593m.

Chamanna d’Es-cha – Piz Kesch 3418m -Kesch Pitschen 2990m – Kesch hut

Today we are going to climb Piz Kesch, the highest mountain of the Albula Alps with its 3418 meters. We pull our track pretty directly up to the 3007m high Porta d’Es-cha. The last meters up to the Porta and the first meters down to the Vadret da Porchabella can be crisp, depending on the conditions. Continue over the gentle glacier to the ski depot. From here it is on foot, initially over a steep snow field, later over a band and individual smaller rock steps up to the summit. Once on the summit, our efforts are rewarded by a truly fantastic panoramic view that stretches from the Ötztal Alps and Gardena Dolomites, the Ortles and Adamello over the Bernina Group to the four-thousand-meter peaks of the Valais and Bern.

Then a short descent on the glacier and again a nice climb to Kesch Pitschen. At the end of the day, a very nice descent down to the well-equipped Keschhütte (2627m) awaits us.

In addition to another wonderful view, a short descent through the southeast exposed summit slope and a long traverse towards Piz Grialetsch awaits us. Over short steeper slopes to a small plateau where we set up our ski depot at the beginning of the summit climb. Through a wide couloir we trudge towards the summit. What follows later is pure pleasure down to the Grialetsch hut 2540m, past the Fuorcla Vallorgia
