“Mountain for experienced walkers - or Marmot spotting!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

This is a 2900m + mountain that is for possible for experienced walkers (via a scree path or via ferrata for those qualiifed). If not wishing to do that a good familywalk isd no17 to the lower slopes and round the Schilt through marmot valley - you might be lucky and see one!

“Technical but doable”
Reviewed 3 August 2012 via mobile

My son and I revisited this hike twice - both times with positive results. It's a great climb from the top of the First gondola and is never too crowded. It's moderately difficult if you're unseasoned and is certainly too much elevation gain for the unfit. That said, we enjoyed the views and the solitude tremendously. There are certainly easier hikes around Grindlewald, but this one is kind of the 'goldilocks' zone; not too much, not too easy... Just right.
