[edit] General information

Merely a subsidiary summit of the Jungfrau but probably worth traversing to extend the ascent of this mountain. There are two rock climbs on the SE face (AD and D) but otherwise there is little of interest.

157 TRAVERSE SOUTH-NORTH AD T von Hahn with F Amatter and F Kaufmann, 1 Aug 1907 68 From the Monchjoch or Konkordia huts follow Route 150 to the foot of Pt 3411.1m. Pass round the S side of this point (large crevasses) and climb steepening snow slopes towards the Louwihorn (3778m). Traverse under this summit to the col at the foot of the SE ridge. Climb a steep, narrow snow/ice couloir, which cuts through the lower two thirds of the rocks, and then easy rocks to the summit. 3-4hr Descend the easy snow ridge to the Rottalsattel and rejoin Route 150 to the Jungfrau. 15min.
