From Chamanna Jenatsch:

Safe conditions on the Vadret d'Err are required (30 - 35° at 100 m altitude). The ascent to the summit can be tricky in hard snow or even icing, crampons are then essential.

From the Chamanna Jenatsch (2652 m) to the NW and through a steep valley to the Vadret d'Err. Over this steeply up in the middle (watch out for crevasses), then over the glacier plateau in a northerly direction to the right of P. 3308 into the hollow at the foot of the summit structure. On skis over the steep E-slope to below the striking summit rocks. Ski depot. Now turn right through a steep snow gully into a saddle from N over easy rocks to the summit. 2.5 hours

Descent: along the ascent route

Departure to Sur:

Great steep descent, but only for safe, experienced alpine skiers and with ideal firn (average gradient 35° to 450 m, in the upper part up to 45°). Occasionally, it is also done in the ascent. The protected areas in the N and S of Sur must be observed.

Descent: From the ski depot to the saddle between Piz d'Err and P. 3308. Now through the SW couloir or, depending on firn conditions, over the S-flank down into the large basin of Tellers Davains. To the left of P. 2315 descend into the plain of Alp Flix to Tgalucas (1969 m) on the alpine road, finally over open meadow slopes to Sur (1537 m).

Departure to the Val d'Err to Tinizong:

Challenging, alpine descent over the northern Vadret d'Err. Due to the retreat of the glacier, the steepness has increased compared to the LK (30° - 45° at 400 m). The respective conditions must be explored in advance, as the descent route from the summit is not visible, and the danger of crevasses should not be underestimated. Perfect visibility and experience in assessing the avalanche danger are a prerequisite.

Descent: from the ski depot to E and on the right edge of the glacier below the rocks of the Corn Jenatsch (3165 m) keep right down into the huge basin of the Val d'Err. Through the gently sloping valley to Alp d'Err and Alp Viglia (1974 m) and follow the alpine path briefly downhill to the bridge P. 1659 at Tgant Pensa. On the road or on the S side of the stream you can reach Tinizong (1232 m).


Beautiful view to Piz d'Err.

After the tour have a stop in one of the comfortable restaurants in Bivio.
