Cima Rossa

Cima Rossa is a 3,161 metres high mountain in the Lepontine Alps, located on the border between the cantons of Ticino and Graub√ľnden. On the west side it overlooks the valley of Malvaglia (Ticino) and on the east side it overlooks the valley of Calanca (Graub√ľnden).

Cima Rossa is connected to the higher massif of the Vogelberg by a four km ridge, not descending lower than 2,925 metres. A secondary summit (3,121 metres) named Piz Piotta lies north of the summit of Cima Rossa. A small glacier lies between them on the west flanks, named Ghiacciaio di Piotta.
