Climbing and Gear: Two 50m ropes are required for most descents, though there are some walk-offs. A light rack may be useful, as well.
Groceries/Climbing Shop: There is a Coop grocery store in Schiers, but for bigger stock-ups, head to Landquart or Chur. Be sure to stock up before going to Rätikon, because you likely wont want to drive back down to town.
Norbert Joos Bergsport is an excellent climbing/outdoors store in Chur. The store sells threaded propane canisters, has an excellent guidebook selection, and offers any climbing equipment you might need. The address is: Kasernenstrasse 90, 7000 Chur.
Camping/hut: Tent camping in Rätikon is technically illegal, but it is tolerated if one bivies or sleeps in their vehicle. Most people sleep in the parking lot for the Pardutzhütte. From the parking, you will find water and a pit toilet across the road and up the hill on the right side of the hut.
If you wish to sleep in the Pardutzhütte at Rätikon, reservations can be made atkcr-online.ch. The key can be picked up at the Gaissschara restaurant in Schuders. The cost is 20 CHF per person/night.
