The Piz Segnas is a mountain in Switzerland. The summit is - as well as that of the neighboring Piz Sardona - from the ancient rocks of the Verrucano blanket that was pushed in folding of the Alps on the much younger Flyschschichten that form the base of the mountain. The summit is located northeast of Segnaspasses touch of Elm in the Glarus with Flims in the canton of Grisons.


The summit is reached from the west or north-east. However, the route from the northeast via the back forming glaciers and becomes more critical, which is why here the west rise is described ( see reference). A shorter rise allows the cable car from Flims to Naraus and then walk to the Camona da Segnas ( 2102 m). In the summer the surrounding se gray mountain railway is not operating. In the summer of 2009 was the first time a bus service to nibbles (1 km SW of Camona da Segnas, at 2127 meters above sea level ) in operation, of which, however, must be relegated to the Segnas floor at the cottage again. From the Segnas Hut ( Camona da Segnas ) it comes up in the direction of the Kar Segnaspasses. Even before reaching the pass below the Westgrates go up depending on the conditions on debris or corn to the saddle near the southern Vorgipfels ( 3012 m). From there it goes through the narrow ridge to the summit. The increase is glacier -free, but leads over alpine terrain and firn. In winter, the ascent is better over the glacier, northeast of the summit.

Who can be satisfied with the sight of the mountain, you can do this from Fil de Cassons from; either after a climb through the Bargis valley to Fuorcia Raschaglius and below the south flank of Piz Dolf through or in 2011 or with the cable car from Flims, whose future is uncertain. The trip between the two floodplains of the Lower and Upper Segnasboden Camona da Segnaszur Fuorcia Raschaglius is equally impressive.
