Piz Bernina (4048 m), normal route, south ridge

The Piz Bernina (4048 m) is the summit of the Engadine region, it's the most eastern 4000m summit of the alps. Here the peak names are a bit strange, with a lot of "tsch" : it's the Romansh country, the 4th official language of Switzerland. Anyway, probably the last skiing session of the season ! We are in June, but the general atmosphere was closer to early spring, with a lot of fresh and tricky snow.
