This technical summit trail starts in the village and leads up to the sun-drenched slopes of the Reeti. Good footwear and careful footwork are essential for tackling this demanding route which is often very exposed. Personal safety is always the individual’s responsibility, which is why we recommend this trail for experienced mountain walkers. The summit offers a magnificent view of the valley and of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, before the trail continues to First. The route should be attempted only in very good and stable weather conditions.
