The Pizol peak rises majestically to 2,844 m above sea level. The alpine route leads past the famous Wildsee lake, along the remains of the Pizol glacier up to the summit.
Distance 9.3 km
An alpine route leads to the Pizol summit at 2844m. For safety reasons, this route was moved from the Pizol glacier into the rocks and is marked blue and white. Steel ropes are also used as handrails in places exposed to rockfall.
You reach the marked path with the gondola and chair lifts Wangs - Furt - Gaffia up to the Pizolhütte. The ascent to the Wildseelücke begins there. Once in the gap you enjoy a magnificent view of the Wildsee, the Pizol summit and the Grauen Hörner. Along the Wildsee you go up towards Pizolsattel and then to the summit.
The Pizol is a massive block peak with two summit points separated by a small saddle. The higher south summit carries a small summit cross with a summit book, the slightly lower north summit a small stone man. The first documented ascent was made on 15 August 1864 by Emil Frey-Gessner.
The neighbouring lavinahorns are just as beautiful and exciting as the Pizol summit. The twelve horns stand between Pizol and Hochwart, are wild and very lonely in contrast to the Pizol.
