Hiking on top of fantastic lookout tower. Glacier skitour. At the end, you will reach the summit from the north, to the top of the climbing terrain. Next continue to the Diechterlimi saddle and from there a fantastic downhill run to Gelmerhütte and then to the Gelmersee dam. If the lake is not frozen, the route along the northern bank can be very challenging, depending on the snow conditions. After crossing the dam, is coming downhill, often very complicated, traversing western slope to the Grimselpass road. After that, a bit on the parking lot under the Räterichsboden dam and at first a steep traverse to Bächlihütte - a hut on the top.
