From Scuol take the cable cars to the Motta Naluns ski area and continue to the Champatsch mountain station (2790 m a.s.l.) The tour then starts with a short descent on a north-facing slope to the Tiral plain. This is followed by a flat ascent to the hollow between Piz Tasna and the prominent Mot peak (2705 m above sea level). The tour then leads westwards to the Vadret da Tasna before tackling the steep final slope to the east shoulder. For the ascent to the summit, a ski depot must be prepared. The climb leads up the steep summit ascent to Piz Tasna on the south side. Several downhill options along the ascent route to Sent, the Zuort farm, Vna, through Val Tasna to Ardez or back to the Mottas Naluns ski area.
