Start of the hike at 08:15 in Bivio. I followed the white-red-white marked trail towards Stallerberg (T2). At P.2429, I left the marked trail and hiked more or less straight towards Piz Surparé. For the final ascent, there are some small cairns and an unmarked trail showing the way. Overall, the difficulty of the ascent I would rate T3+.

From the summit I descended to the ridge between the two summits, and then I headed down the NE flank, first through the scree, and later mostly by surfing down on the snowfields (T4-). The slope is around 36° in the upper part.

Next, I proceeded through Val Gronda, past P.2461, and back to the white-red-white marked trail where I had ascended earlier.
