Lasa peak from the north-west ( Schluderns )
|location||South Tyrol , Italy|
A Connection Ridge (black wall) leads north to from the white Laas marble built Jennwand (2,962 m). A ridge stretches to the northeast to the Weißwand (2,778 m), the summit of which is also marble. The southwest ridge connects to the Schluderspitze (3,230 m) and contains the Schluderscharte (2,987 m), the only connection between the Martell valley and the Laaser valley .
The mountain name Laaser Spitze , which is more common today and refers to the village of Laas below the mountain, seems to be more recent. The origin of the name Orgelspitze , obviously not a reference to an organ , is unclear. A reference to Norggen , Tyrolean legendary figures , was suspected . Another theory explains the name via the Indo-European root * areq , which means "closed, remote area".
Climbed since ancient times, the first known ascent was made in 1855 by J. Feuerstein. In 1882 Emil and Otto Zsigmondy and M. Wachter made their first ascent over the northeast ridge. Today's usual route to the summit begins at the Stallwieshof in the Martell Valley.
