Piz Quattervals: Das Dach des Nationalparks
Show all 4 images
The tour leads from the wildly romantic Chamanna Cluozza (overnight) through the Valletta to the Piz Quattervals. The ascent is considered alpinistically demanding. Capricorns can often be observed in the rocks and a ground at almost 2500 m above sea level offers a diverse alpine flora in July with Mont Cenis bellflower, creeping carnation root and stemless limeweed. From an altitude of 2500 m above sea level, the tracks are lost. It is stipulated that the Piz Quattervals may only be climbed from the Val Cluozza through the side valley Valletta. Other routes are not allowed. Attention, especially in high and late summer the Piz Quattervalls is considered rockfall dangerous.
Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a leash. For more information and all protections, see nationalpark.ch/schutzbestimmungen.
Alpine Route (white-blue-white). The tour is only recommended for mountaineering experienced hikers with appropriate equipment. Avalanches may be expected on snow-covered flanks, and there is a risk of falling rocks in places when the flank is overcast.

From Zernez train station (1474 m above sea level) through Val Cluozza, the oldest part of the Swiss National Park, to Chamanna Cluozza (see route Chamanna Cluozza). Before climbing Piz Quatterval Overnight stay in Chamanna Cluozza (1862 m a.s.l.) – advance booking required (www.cluozza.ch / Tel. +41 81 856 12 35).
From the Chamanna, the route first descends to the Ova da Cluozza, crosses the stream (1835 m above sea level) and flows into the Valletta. There the path initially follows the course of the stream and then climbs steadily along the western flank of the valley. The lower rock bar (2200 m above sea level) is bypassed on the right, the upper one (2400 m above sea level) is crossed. The further path leads over a wide rock glacier and reaches the first snowfields in midsummer at about 2700 m above sea level. In early summer, when hard snow still covers the entire northern flank of Piz Quatterval, a route directly from the north is advisable from here. In case of stronger aperation, it is advisable to climb the northwest ridge and reach the summit via point 2985. For the ascent, the low-debris areas should be chosen (danger of falling rocks by preceding alpinists). After fresh snowfall, a possible avalanche danger must also be taken into account when climbing through the north side. The path over the northwest ridge leads over block rubble and rock bands to the summit (3165 m above sea level). The way back leads over the northwest ridge or directly over the north flank again through the Valletta back to Chamanna Cluozza.
