The Moiry Glacier (French: Glacier de Moiry)
The Moirygletscher is a glacier in the southern valley end of the Val de Moiry, a tributary of the Anniviers. The glaciers in the Swiss Alps is 5 km long, an average of about 1 km wide and covers an area of approximately 5 square kilometers.
Takes as its starting point the Moirygletscher on the northern edge of the Grand Cornier altitude of around 3800 m. M. From here it flows north, flanked by the Pointe de Bricola (3658 m above sea level. M.) and the Tsa de l'Ano (3368 m above sea level. M.) above sea level in the west and from the Bouquetins (up to 3627 m. M.) and the Pigne de la Lé (3396 m above sea level. M.) to the east. At the western base of the Pigne de la Lé overcomes the glacier a steep cliff, or he has a relatively uniform slope of 15 to 20%. The glacier is currently at an altitude of 2400 m above sea level. M. The Moirygletscher feeds the Gougra that is jammed in the Lac de Moiry and then flows into the Navisence. Current flows through the Anniviers and reached the Rhône at Sierre.
High Stadium in the Little Ice Age in the mid-19th Century the Moirygletscher still stretched from about 1 km downstream. On a rocky slope above the glacier east is the Cabane de Moiry, above a hut of the Swiss Alpine Club in 2825 m. M. It has a very nice view of the entire glacier.
