From the Swiss side, the Great Druze Tower is a pure climbing peak with an impressive south face of almost 500 m height. From the north, on the other hand, the summit can also be reached by ski through the Sporertobel (30 - 35° to 300 m ascent), provided that conditions are safe. The route leads from St. Antönien Rüti (1460 m above sea.M level) via Partnun up to the Carschinahütte SAC (2230 m above sea level.M.). From the Carschinafurgga you cross the N-slopes of the Zypärliberg to the Drusator (2341 m above sea level.M.). After a short descent past the Zollhütte to point 2170 you climb in a westerly direction into the Sporasattel (about 2450 m above sea level.M), south of the Spora tower. Through the Sporertobel (30 - 35 ° to 300 m ascent), past the Middle Tower (2782 m above sea.M level), to the summit of the Great Tower (2830 m above sea level.M.). The Large, Middle and Small Druze Towers are summarized on the map under the term "Dri Türm". The descent takes place in the area of the ascent track or alternatively via the Lindauerhütten to Tschagguns (A).


Add more days in St. Antönien and climb the equally impressive Sulzfluh through the Gemstobel.
