Great hike to Piz Arpschella together with roko!
Here is a link to his report in German.

We started at Chant Sura following the wrw marked trail to Alp Grialetsch. There we used the bridge to cross the small river Aua da Grialetsch. Just passed Alp Grialetsch, we continued straight up the hillside following a creek or couloir (briefly T4-). Further up we more or less followed the Piz Arpschella west ridge, which is not very distinct. It's more like a bulge in the west flank. Overall difficulty: T3

The view from the summit was great, even if some clouds had meanwhile moved in.

After a nice lunch break, we descended the west flank again. Then we followed the "goat trail", which is a bit of a detour, but easier and not so steep. This route was described previously by Andi75.

I refer to the attached GPS track for more details on the route.
The total time indicated for this hike includes about an hour lunch break at the summit.
