Show all 4 images
The tour leads from the wildly romantic Chamanna Cluozza (overnight stay) through the Valletta to the Piz Quattervals. The ascent is considered to be mountaineering challenging. Ibexes can often be observed in the rocks and a soil at almost 2500 m above sea level.M. offers a diverse alpine flora in July with Mont Cenis bellflower, creeping carnation root and stemless gluewort. From an altitude of 2500 m above sea level.M. the trail 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 dangerous to rockfall.
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 high mountain hikers with appropriate equipment. In the case of a snow-covered flank, avalanches may be to be expected, in the event of a clearing, there is a risk of rockfall in places.

From Zernez train station (1474 m above.M sea level) through Val Cluozza, the oldest part of the Swiss National Park, to Chamanna Cluozza (see Route Chamanna Cluozza). Before climbing the Piz Quattervals overnight stay in the Chamanna Cluozza (1862 m above sea.M level) – reservation urgently 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.M sea level) and flows into the Valletta. There, the path initially follows the course of the stream and then rises steadily along the western flank of the valley. The lower rock bar (2200 m above sea.M level) is bypassed to the right, the upper one (2400 m above sea.M level) is crossed. The further path leads over a wide block glacier and reaches the first snow fields in midsummer at about 2700 m above sea level.M. In early summer, when hard snow still covers the entire northern flank of the Piz Quatterval, a route directly from the north is advisable from here. In case of stronger erosion, it is recommended to climb the northwest ridge and reach the summit via point 2985. For the ascent, the low-debris areas should be chosen (risk of rockfall by previous 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 debris and rock bands to the summit (3165 m above sea level.M.). The way back leads over the northwest ridge or directly over the northern flank again through the Valletta back to Chamanna Cluozza.
