The Piz Roseg offers with its double summit an impressive view of near and far. As a prominent cornerstone of the triumvirate Piz Roseg - Piz Scerscen - Piz Bernina, it is a prominent part of the Bernina massif and is therefore often photographed and climbed.
The most popular route is the donkey ridge of the Chamanna da Tschierva. The route offers a varied combined high-altitude tour over glaciers, exposed ridges, steep flanks and over mostly solid rock. The deep view is spectacular and impressive, as the top part of the climb leads directly over the ridge above the famous northeast face.
