Piz Trovat I via ferrata

Piz Trovat I via ferrata

 open  partly open   closed 

The first via ferrata – or fixed-rope climb – in the Engadin follows a two-hour route up to the Piz Trovat (3,146m), where, just a 20-minute walk from the Diavolezza top station, alpinists can enjoy a simple climbing experience while taking in magnificent panoramic views. The route starts at around 2,850 metres above sea level, and after following the western buttress, leads to a small gorge (at 3,050m) and on up to the summit. Here, after traversing around 500 steps, a ladder and a bridge, you can see the Bernina massif laid out below your feet. Climbers should be generally fit, sure-footed and have a good head for heights. The obligatory equipment can be hired at the Diavolezza bottom station.

  • Advanced choose the difficult Route
  • The equipment (climbing harness, fall arrest harness, helmet and gloves) is obligatory and can be rented at the Diavolezza base station
  • Via ferrata is free
  • “Via ferratas” are fixed-rope climbing routes, some of which are also accessible for “non-climbers” thanks to firmly installed wire cables and artificial hold points. Difficult routes are only for experienced rock climbers. Please note the indications of the respective levels of difficulty!
  • It is recommended to employ the services of a professional mountain guide during the first ascent.
