Piz Morteratsch 3751 m Route archive

Der Piz Morteratsch ist ein viel besuchter Aussichtsberg im Zentrum der Berninagruppe. Auf der Bovalseite bildet der Gipfelgletscher einen mächtigen Eisbalkon mit zwei gut sichtbaren Felsgraten ; der linke ist der Spraunzagrat. Von der Tschiervaseite her wirkt der Piz Morteratsch weniger imposant und ausschliesslich felsig.

Morteratsch leitet sich aus dem romanischen murtèr ab (Mörser, Mulde, Kessel).
