Calderas Gletscherloch

Der Piz Calderas zählt neben der Tschima da Flix, dem Piz d’Err, Piz Picuogl, Piz Traunter Ovas zu den Gipfeln, die man ab der Jenatschhütte SAC besteigen kann. Auch für Skitouren sind einige dieser Gipfel lohnenswert.

Für Tschima da Flix und Piz Calderas erfolgt der Aufstieg über den (leider schwindenden) Calderas-Gletscher.

In der Zwischensaison, am 23. Juni 2020 sehen wir, wie das Gletscherseeli vor dem Gletscherloch sich langsam von Schnee und Eis befreit…

Tschima da Flix

July, 5th, 2019. We hiked from Chamanna Jenatsch along the Agnel Glacier to the pass caaled Fuorcla de Flix. From this point you already have a marvellous view over the valley Surses. Even if there are some patches of snow, you could already descend to (or ascend from the Fuorcle d’Agnel to) Marmorera or Alp Flix. For some hikers, it might have been tiring enough, so they could turn around and head back to de Chamanna Jenatsch.

But the inferior summit Tschmia da Flix is only 250 m up, and rather easy going. So we made it to the point 3301m. From here you have the Tschima da Flix in good view, and, what’s much better, a stunning view to the Bernina Mountains.
Just below your feet you see the Calderas Glacier, Piz Calderas 3397 m is just behind!

Changing weather conditions…

To be in the mountains, to come to Chamanna Jenatsch… and to have perfect weather conditions, blue sky, sunshine, no breeze… that’s what most hikers want.

But if unfortunately you have done the hike, with clouds blocking the views to the summits, or even fog coming in… well, maybe you are a photographer and you’ll be able to take some shots the sunshine most paperazzi will not get!

Die Chamanna Jenatsch early morning June 20th, 2019

Chamanna Jenatsch is located in the municipality Bever (Kanton Graubünden) at 2653 m.
The shortest way in is a hike from Julierpass just below the Hospizio La Veduta. Starting at 2200 m you’ll have to cross Fuorcla d’Agnel, a hiking pass at 2980 m. Count about 4 hours, depending on your fitness…
It will take a bit longer ( 4 1/2 hours) from RhB-Station Spinas situated at 1815 m., but the hike is easier .
Keep in mind that this route is closed in winter and spring, due to avalanche danger.
