Cresta-Biwak SAC 3025 m

The well-equipped Cresta bivouac is listed in the hut directory of the SAC since summer 2018. It is located at the foot of the Latelhorn, to the north-east of the Antrona Pass about two hundred meters above the top of the pass. The bivouac is the ideal starting point for the climb over the Cresta di Saas, a long ridge traverse on the border ridge Italy/Switzerland. By the way, this is the old bivouac box from Mischabeljoch, which has been given a new purpose here.
