Horlini 2451masl

From Leukerbad via the Torrentalp (route 696)

Easy accessible lookout with magnificent views deep into the middle Rhone valley (Sierre and Sion). Two beautiful descents: on the southwest side to Albinen and - when there is enough snow - south to Guttet. The Horlini can well be connected with the ascent of Loichaspitza (route 704), the Torrenthorn (route 694b) or the Schafberg (route 695).

General information: the route is E (easy) with an altitude difference of 250 to 530m, the slope direction is W and N. For the tour you should plan 1-2 hours, and you will find the route on the map 263S.

Starting point: Rinderhütte, mountain station of the cable car from Leukerbad or by Torrentalp, middle station of the gondola of Flaschen.

Comments: Worth it only as an ascent.

Ascent: From Rinderhütte (2350masl) more or less along the access road through the Schafbergwest flank (variant departure only during secure conditions) on Praabergga (approximately 2200m). From the middle station Torrentalp over the actual Torrentalp and a steeper slope, which one climbs as far south as possible. Eastward over the Oberi Alp to transition Schnydi (2394m). Over the N summit to the secondary summit, behind, shortly down and over a last steeper slope to the highest point of Horlini (2451masl).

General information: The route is E+ (easy), the direct descent is WS (on 200 elevation gain 32°). The difference in altitude 1140m (250m less in use of the ski lift). The slope direction is southwest and you should plan for the tour 3 hours.

Starting point: Albinen (1311masl) on the sunny slope in the valley of Dala.

Comments: Especially nice when the extreme sun grass slopes below Albinen is so much snow that since Tschingere (987masl) can be driven on the road Leuk-Leukerbad.

Endpoint: Guttet (1345masl) or the east beneath them lying district Wiler (1245masl).

Comments: In the lower hillside. not far from the grapevines of the Rhone valley, you have to expect slopes, although at Guttet a ski lift is located on the map.
