Piz Vadret - North ridge and South face Map

From Punt Muragl adventure through Val Muragl along the first wide ridges of the valley bottom, which gradually become increasingly sharp and winding. Arrived in the presence of the peaks that give name and mountaineering interest to this valley (Piz Muragl, Corn, Clux, ...) point towards the west face of the Piz Vadret, reaching the saddle that separates it from the Piz da Las Sterlas. Climb up the aerial ridge to the summit of Piz Vadret, from here you will have a boundless view of the Palu and Bernina massifs, with their glaciers. Descend from the steep south face avoiding the rocky and plunged ridges in the valley of ascent from Fuorcla Muragl



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
