Municipality: St. Moritz
 

Nice, high and easy tour at the Julierpass. Except for a short steep step at the beginning of the tour and the last meters on the summit slope, the tour is in an under 30° terrain. Due to the starting altitude of over 2000m and the north facing descent, the tour is still feasible at the end of the season. This tour is not one of the insider tips in the area and is quite often done. Nevertheless you can still find some untracked variants if you keep your eyes open. With fresh snow you should be in time.

Route description
Starting point:

At the starting point there is a small parking bay with a bridge over the stream running parallel to the pass road.

Ascent:

The basin in southern direction up to Gianda Polaschin. Here is the crucial point of the tour: A short vertical ramp (under 35°) of 50 m height up to the cliffs of Piz Polaschin. Traverse a little below the rock face in a south-south-western direction until the terrain becomes flatter again. At this traverse, avalanches can descend from the higher-lying rock gully, so cross the spot quickly and keep an eye on the rock gully. Continue in southwestern direction until you reach Vadret Lagrev. In high winter and spring, you cross the small mountain lake Lej Lagrev without noticing it. The last meters to point 3084 are a bit steeper again. From this secondary peak you already have a very nice view of St. Moritz and all the surrounding mountains. From here you can continue with the splitboard over the mostly blown off ridge in NW direction to point 3109 and on foot over the slightly exposed ridge another 700m to the summit. In the track the tour is only marked up to the secondary summit.

Descent:

Along the ascent route.
