Mountaineering and climbing
Val Bregaglia with its high alpine side valleys Forno, Albigna and Bondasca is a dream.
Badile north ridge. The "Fiamma". The granite of Bregaglia Valley is unique in all the Alps and throws the most bizarre shapes. As they differ from each other, mountaineers will find a wide selection of flanks of every level of difficulty: vertical walls and narrow edges, smooth and rough rock structures, snow and glaciers.
The Via Cassin on the north-east face of the Piz Badile is one of the many tours climbed by Daniel Mohler and Christoph Klein. Bergauf-Bergab dedicates this film to Walter Pause's "Im extremen Fels", 50 years after its first edition.
But hikers are also looking for challenges on the alpine trails to the peaks or over the passes: whether crossing over to Italy or a round tour in Val Bregaglia - the terrain offers exciting paths and interesting challenges everywhere.
Mountain sports enthusiasts who want to tackle these challenging climbs currently have three huts of the Swiss Alpine Club SAC at their disposal: The Forno hut above the glacier of the same name, the Albigna hut above the reservoir lake, which marks the entrance to Spazzacaldeira, and the Sasc Furä directly below the summit of the Badile. Please note: The Sciora hut is still closed due to the landslide at Piz Cengalo 2017.
In the Forno area and around the Albigna more than thirty peaks are waiting to be climbed. The Bondasca Valley is the pearl for experienced alpinists, the climbing scale ranges from difficult to very difficult. Our mountain guides are proud to guide you through this exciting terrain.
