Description

The classic north face starts right behind the peak.

You have to keep skiers left to reach a prominent ridge which spits you out eventually into Pazieltal (boarders disadvantaged, the traverse out is a little tedious).

With a guide, they take you up with skis with Valluga II.

If you are without a guide, you have to earn it & climbing up west, then along the ridge.

The ascent take 30-40 minutes depending on how deep the snow.

Then take a short traverse back in to reach the north slope.

The first patch of the Valluga North is exposed with a cliff below.

The rumour has it that they closed the second part for non-guide accompanied skiers due to accidents.

Prior to the opening of the Flexen Gondola this (and Valluga West) used to be the way to get over to Lech/Zuers. After the first patch you have a variety of options to go through the Pazieltal.
