Informationen zur Tour Punta Saldura
Ascent: we take the fenced footpath (signposted: “Lagauntal”) which starts opposite the mountain farms. Going round a hill on the right-hand side we reach the next signpost. The route now goes diagonally to the left towards the Val di Lagaun. Going past the wood and through a gate we enter the main valley. We continue along the wide flat valley floor below a prominent and visible morainic ridge. We go right along a wide rocky hollow which gradually narrows and we reach the entrance to the Lagaun glacier. We continue straight ahead to reach the foot of a mountain peak to the right of the Lagaunspitze. We now have two possible routes up the steep mountain:
a) from the left-hand edge of the glacier and to the right of two rocky spurs, we can go up a narrow and very steep slope as far as the crest, along which we can reach, after a series of ups and downs, the mountain top;
b) we can follow straight up an extremely steep and fairly long path which goes through a wide canyon and leads up to the mountain top.
Descent: via the same route.
Direction: south - east
Difficulty for skiers: average; the area around the peak is very steep
Difficulty for hikers: average in the area around the peak
