At four in the morning, two Germans aged 39 and 50 left Capanna Sasc Furä to climb Piz Badile on the Cassin Route. But shortly before 6.30 a.m. one of the two alpinists crashed and also dragged his partner with him.
The injured could independently alert Rega. The men were rescued and brought to the Graubünden Cantonal Hospital in Chur. How exactly the accident could have occurred is now being investigated. (ymh)
