They are not the highest 4000m peaks around Zermatt, but for certain they have the most beautiful main routes. Two perfectly shaped mountains, which could not be more differing: the Zinalrothorn with its varied access and the wonderful – easy to grip-climbing sections at the end and the Obergabelhorn, with its demanding and exposed main route, which leads over the Wellenkuppe and the Gratgendarm to the highest point. In a word: two fantastic climbs starting from only one hut.
