The Albigna is a paradise for mountaineering and climbing. The most photographed and treasured peak of the valley is undoubtedly the Fiamma, but also the surrounding peaks of Spazzacaldeira like the Piz Frachiccio or the Punta dell Albigna offer many attractive routes of different levels and lenght.
For those who like to boulder, they find around the hut 4 areas with more than 50 boulders with a hundred routes waiting to be climbed. For beginners a nice climbing park with easy routes (3-4 grade, 25 meters or less) is situated just a few steps from the hut. Albigna is not only a valley for mountaineers, the short hike (1 hour) from the cableway or the round tour around the hut are also accessible to the relaxed hikers and families. For the more experienced mountain goers, a blue-white path (T5) leads from the hut to mountain lakes, crossing at the right a marked rocky rib, until it reaches the Casnil Pass at an altitude of 2940 m and then descends to the Forno hut or into the Forno valley direction Maloja. Also in winter the Albigna area and its peaks are explored by ski mountaineers, often in combination with the Forno valley.
