Pizol summit tour
Show all 9 images
You reach the marked path with the gondola and chair lifts Wangs - Furt - Gaffia up to the Pizolhütte. The ascent to the Wildseelücke begins there. Once in the gap you enjoy a magnificent view of the Wildsee, the Pizol summit and the Grauen Hörner. Along the Wildsee you go up towards Pizolsattel and then to the summit.
The Pizol is a massive block peak with two summit points separated by a small saddle. The higher south summit carries a small summit cross with a summit book, the slightly lower north summit a small stone man. The first documented ascent was made on 15 August 1864 by Emil Frey-Gessner.
We reach the Pizolhütte with the gondola and chairlifts from Wangs via the ford and Gaffia. From there we start the hike with the first ascent on the way of the well-known 5-lakes hike. In a zigzag it goes up to the Wildseeluggen. Here we turn left and walk in the scree past the lake towards Pizolsattel. The next ascent was moved from the Pizol glacier into the rock for safety reasons. In exposed places, steel cables are attached as a handrail. Once on the saddle, we continue on the right over the ridge until we reach the Pizol summit from behind.
For the way back we have different combination options:
- Same way back
- Combinations with the summit quartet or the 5-lakes hike
