Tschierva (hut)

"High mountains, rock, snow, ice, glaciers, and hundreds of climbs of all grades characterize the Bernina, the wonderful high-alpine area just south of St. Moritz. A steep, knife-edged snow ridge, the Biancograt, one of the great, classical climbs, leads like a ladder to Piz Bernina (4049 m). Come to the Tschierva Hut for superb mountaineering in one of the most beautiful and exciting regions of the Alps."
