Schmorrasgrat is the name given to the ridge separating the Mulin valley (Mulegn valley; Val Mulegn), a right side-valley of the main Ferrera valley, from the Schmorras Valley (Val Schmorras), a minor southwestern branch of the Oberhalbstein (Surses), between Piz Settember to the north and Piz Alv to the south. The northern segment of the ridge, between Piz Settember and Fuorcla Cotschna, is called Schmorrasgrat-North. The highest point of this segment (2621 m) is locally known as Tschanghel Ner.
