Piz Turba is a mountain at the border between the regions Avers, Bergell, and Oberhalbstein.

Start of the hike at 8:20 in Bivio. The weather was perfect with blue skies! I brought my mountain bike along. Going uphill, I partially biked, and partially walked the bike. The road to the Septimer pass is paved for 1.5 km, the rest is unpaved but in good shape. At the the Septimer pass, I parked the bike, and continued on the white-red-white marked trail towards the Forcellina pass (T2).

From Forcellina I continued in southwesterly direction across snowfields and rocky terrain (T3). There is still plenty of snow in the area, which makes the descent a lot easier. But going uphill, it was not necessarily easier than in the scree, but somewhat similar. Two steps forward, and one step backwards...

In the steepest part of the ascent up to the Piz Turba west ridge, there is still a large and steep snowfield. Instead of mounting my crampons, I bypassed the snowfield on the right hand side in the scree (T4-).

The view from the summit of Piz Turba was magnificent in all directions! And it was so quiet up there, like being somwhere in the remote wilderness. Surprisingly, the only mobile phone reception I had at the summit was from an Italian provider.

During the descent, I generally followed the same route, except a detour I took to the small lake called Leg Curegia.

After I got back to the Septimer pass, it was a quick bike ride back down to Bivio.
