Von Bivio mit dem Skilift leicht erreichbarer und vielbesuchter Skigipfel mit schöner Rundsicht. Bei klarer Fernsicht ist sogar das Matterhorn sichtbar. Der Zugang aus dem Avers ist um einiges schwieriger, und sichere Verhältnisse sind hier erforderlich. Steilste Passage unterhalb der Fuorcla da la Valletta 35° auf 150 Hm.
