From Capanna Quintino Sella via the South-East Castor 4223 m
- PD, I
- 2:30–3:15 h, 740 m
- 98 m
Ideal, attractive traverse, where you can easily add-on an ascent of the Felikhorn / Punta Felik (4087 m). The climb from the Monte Rosahütte over the Zwillingsgletscher is much more difficult in terms of route finding etc. (4 hours to the Felikjoch).
From the Capanna Quintino Sella (3585 m) climb over the Felikgletscher and follow the eastern snow ridge to summit the Felikhorn (4086 m), 1½ hours. Now you descend left hand (W) to Felikjoch (4066 m)
From the Felikjoch, you can reach a rocky shoulder (4174 m) via a sometimes icy firn flank. Then follow the easy firn ridge to the summit of Castor (4223 m), 1 hour from the Felikjoch.
Follow the route of Ascent.
