Cresta-Biwak SAC 3025 m

Das gut eingerichtete Cresta-Biwak ist seit Sommer 2018 im Hüttenverzeichnis des SAC. Es befindet sich am Fuss des Latelhorns, im Nordosten des Antronapasses rund zweihundert Höhenmeter über der Passhöhe. Das Biwak ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt für die Tour über die Cresta di Saas, eine lange Gratüberschreitung auf dem Grenzkamm Italien/Schweiz. Es handelt sich übrigens um die alte Biwakschachtel vom Mischabeljoch, die hier einer neuen Aufgabe zugeführt wurde.
