Description

From the town of Zervreila, this narrow ridge appears to rise up like the Devil's Tower of Grabuenden. In fact the ridge itself offers a mellow alpine climb, but there are several much more challenging climbs on the SE face. Nanouk (7a+ A2) awaits a free ascents of one of the upper pitches.

Very useful overview of the peak on SummitPost.

Getting There

Bus or car to Zervreila. If by bus, not to a parking lot with a chapel, which can be a camping spot in the off season. Best approach: bring bikes, and zip 20 min down across the bridge and right to the middle of the lake edge, where the trail is well marked with SAC white and red blazes / poles. 1:15 hike to the ridge from here, also possible to camp ~ halfway along this trail. The NE Grat is the first climb reached, with the SE wall climbs another 20 min hike around the corner.

Camping / car-camping at the carpark is officially verboten during regular season. It is, however, tolerated at the ski resort carpark in Vals.

The last source of drinking water is a fountain at the top of the reservoir (shortly before the carpark).
