From Alp Güglia, go up Valletta dal Güglia (towards the N) until approximately 2700m. Then head E (one passes the I'll Nes by the N) via a gently sloping scoop until Fuorcla Chamuotsch (2923m). Follow the SE ridge as far as the summit (3072m).
Descent via the SW facing slope (30-35° for 150m then gentler slopes) which meets the ascent route around 2700m. The descent of Valletta dal Güglia involves a large flat area around 2520m.
Variant: you can climb directly via the SW slope under the summit without passing through Fuorcla Chamuotsch.
Possibilities of combinations for those who want to continue to enjoy themselves: Fuorcla Margun (2945m), Piz Surgonda (3196m, the most crowded summit of the area), Muot Cotschen (2864m, pretty small forsaken and very quiet summit).
The starting altitude allows a good snow cover and avoids carrying your skis until late in the season.
Without major difficulties. S3 for the SW slope under the summit. Otherwise S2. The summit ridge comprises some short slightly exposed sequences.
S for Valletta dal Güglia (therefore for the majority of the route), W for the scoop which leads to Fuorcla Chamuotsch, SE for the summit ridge and SW for the descent slope under the summit. Valletta dal Güglia remains in the shade early in the morning thanks to the mass of Piz Güglia. Later, the S exposure encourages the transformation of the snow.
from the north: Tiefencastel > Bivio > Julierpass (open in winter) from the south: St. Moritz > Silvaplana > Julierpass The start (2200m) is slightly to the E of Julierpass in the place called "Alp Güglia". A small parking area is on the right side of the road coming from Julierpass opposite the entrance of Valetta dal Güglia. Another, larger one, is slightly farther at the end of a long straight line (towards Engadine). This second parking lot is also is the starting point of the ski tour towards Piz Lagrev.
