Tour Description

We start our tour with the medium difficult Nadelgrat, the climb is already demanding. The entry couloir requires quite a bit of leg muscle power. After a long working day we can log three 4000 m peaks: Dürrenhorn, Hohberghorn and Stecknadelhorn. Next day’s climbing will be steeper, more exposed and more difficult. We are headed to the Lenzspitze and the Nadelhorn – just the right progression! Any ambitioned 4000m peak climber should have experienced!
