Silvretta alpine tours: Piz Buin 3312 m and Dreiländerspitze 3197 m

Two of the most beautiful and well-known 3000 m peaks in the Silvretta Group (A) | 2,5 days

Piz Buin 3312 m is certainly the "most dazzling personality" among the 70 3000-metre peaks of the Silvretta massif. However, the scenic Dreiländerspitze 3197 m, which connects Vorarlberg, Tyrol and Graubünden, is by no means less rewarding. Two unforgettable days of touring await you in high alpine surroundings on glaciers, snow and rock with a panorama that stretches from the Ortler group to Piz Bernina and as far as Tödi.

Program

Day 1Arrival at the Bielerhöhe and individual ascent to the Wiesbadener Hütte. The path to the hut from the Bielerhöhe is easy to follow and well signposted. At the hut you will be greeted by the mountain guide and informed about the upcoming weekend. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious hut dinner and a cosy get-together. (Distance: 5.5 km, walking time: 2 hrs, ascent: 400 m)

Day 2Today’s plan is to summit the crown jewel of the Silvretta massif, the Piz Buin (3312 m), which we will reach via a route crossing the Ochsental Glacier. The ascent to the glacier leads through a high-alpine landscape and finally along the northwest ridge and up to the summit of the most famous peak of the Silvretta massif. Congratulations, you’ve made it to the top! Descend back along the same route. (Distance: 11 km, walking time: 5 hrs, ascent/descent: 1000/1500 m gain/loss)

Day 3From the Wiesbadener Hütte, the trail leads up to the Vermunt Glacier. Now the mountain guide leads you roped up below the Ochsenscharte past to the west ridge. Via this ridge you reach the Dreiländerspitze 3197 m in easy, somewhat exposed climbing (grade II). The descent is via the ascent route back to the Wiesbadener Hütte and Bielerhöhe. (Distance: 12.5 km, walking time: 7 h, ascent/descent: 750/1150 gain/loss)
