  • Difficulty
    T2
  • Ascent
    3:30 h, 1200 m

Normal, shortest and most convenient approach to the hut, first allong the road through the valley, then on a steeper path to the hut. With enough time and fitness, instead of going through Val Plattas, you can climb up to Crap Stagias and from there either cross the Val Plattas or even cross the Piz Ault.

A marked mountain path leads from here past Alp Sura and diagonally up the eastern side of the valley, getting grudually steeper until you reach the hut.
