Route description

Curaglia - Medelserhütte SAC

From Curaglia (1334 m) head to the eastern end of the village, then follow the mountain road round into Val Plattas at P. 1596. Follow the west side of Rein da Plattas along the valley to Alp Sura (1980 m). The steep slopes that the summer path crosses at 1900 m can be avoided via the summit of Marschs P. 2052. The Alp Sura can also be reached, in safe conditions, via the east side of the Rein da Plattas. Follow the valley round to the east into a broad depression at the foot of the Sut Glatscher rocks, climb up to a narrowing (Fuorcla Pintga), pass through this steep gash (30 °), then continue more easily up to the Fuorcla da Lavaz (pass). Turn left to the hut.
