Crossing the Ortler in the ascent over the Hintergrat and in the descent on the Tabarettakamm and the Payerhütte.
1st day: Meeting point at 10.45 am at the train station in Landquart (a detailed timetable for the arrival by public transport is attached to the booking confirmation). Drive via Flüela- and Ofen-Pass to Val Müstair and to Sulden, 1844 m. The chairlift takes us to Langenstein and in an entertaining march to the Hintergrathütte, 2661 m. Dinner overlooking the Königspitze northeast face and discussion of the tour over the Hintergrat. Ascent time approx. 1 hour.
2nd day: After breakfast we reach in the dark over a short stretch of the lower part of the Hintergrat, we climb over lanes and easy climbing points to the Upper Knott. After the broad firn burr, we traverse under the signal head and climb up the short crack that marks the key point of the ascent. Now follow steep, exposed rock passage, until after another steep Firnaufschwung over the last rocks the summit is reached. What a panorama! The descent takes place first over the upper Ortlerferner, past the Lombardi bivouac and over the iron chain, partly exposed ridge to the Payerhütte at 3029 m, where we enjoy a deserved rest. Now the descent back to Sulden via the Tabaret hut and the return to Landquart! Ascent time approx. 5 to 6 hours, total walking time approx. 10 to 12 hours.
