DescriptionThe Piz dal Päl tower is a fun venue with a short approach from the Capanna Albigna hut and great views of the surrounding environs.
The popular route is the SW facing Piccolo with 6 pitches of modest grade climbing on great rock.
Several other options are the SW Arête which is just left of Piccolo and joins that route for the last couple of pitches.
There are also several single pitch routes for a short day and/or threatening weather. Between the SW Arête and Piccolo are three routes leading to the same anchor at, from left to right, 6a, 4b and 5c.
On the east side of the spire there’s a couple of traditional routes. A chimney route, the Camino Est, at 5b and the fierce looking overhanging crack line of Incastro Amaro which might be rated somewhere between 6b and 7a.
Getting ThereA short 10 minute hike uphill behind the Refugio Albigna Cappana. This tower is separated from the main Piz dal Päl massif by a grassy saddle.
300 meters uphill and northeast of the hut. Take the main trail leading uphill away from the hut, then, branch off on the climber trail to the base of the spire.
