From Chamanna Jenatsch, first up to Piz Traunter Ovas. Last bit on very hard snow. From the top, a wonderful view towards Piz Güglia and Piz Bernina.

Skied down to the saddle between Piz Traunter Ovas and Piz Surgonda. Then up to the col between the two Surgonda summits, and from there with crampons to Piz Surgonda East. Down to the presummit.

Wonderful descent to Alp Güglia. Was still skiable almost entirely, with the exception of the last 200 meters.
