Ascent of the Piz Kesch from the Chamanna d'Es-cha over the needle.
1st day: Meeting point at 14.45 at the train station in Tiefencastel. Shared drive to the parking lot of the hut on the Albulapassstrasse at Punt Granda, at 2256 m. Climb on the good hut path to Chamanna d'Es-cha, 2594 m, dinner and discussion of the tour. Ascent time approx. 1 3/4 hours.
2nd day: Climb over the mountain path to Porta d'Es-cha, 3008 m. Via the glacier we reach the beginning of the ridge and via this to the beginning of the actual climbing on the distinctive rock needle. The climbing in the 3rd and 4th degree of difficulty leads in the lower part directly over the ridge edge and offers us as a highlight a short, steep passage in the upper 4th degree at the key point. From the summit of the needle, 3386 m, the crossing follows the partly airy ridge to the main summit of Piz Kesch at 3417 m. Descent on the normal route back to Porta d'Es-cha and the hut. Common descent to the pass road and return to Tiefencastel, where we arrive later in the afternoon. Ascent time approx. 5 hours, total walking time approx. 8 to 9 hours.
