Mauerhorn 2944masl

From Leukerbad ovr Schnydi or Torrethorn and the SW flank (route 699)

"Without name in the map it was formerly called", now it was christened high official in the name of Mauernhorn. The Restirothorn in the south and the Schwarzhorn in the East, indeed steal the view, but not the view and not the descents. From Ferden Matterhorn was considered a classic trip. In combination with the descent through the SE-Couloir on the Torrenthorn (route694b) this is the best route to reach the Lötschental of Leukerbad.

General information: The route is LD (little difficult) via Schnydi and SD+ (somewhat difficult) over the Torrenthorn-summit. The differences in height are via Schnydi 690m and via Torrenthorn-summit 770m ascent. There is any slope direction and you should plan 2.5 hours via Schnydi. The route can be found in the map 263S and 264S.

Starting point: Upper station of the ski lift at the top Torrenthorn-west ridge or Rinderhütte above Leukerbad.

Comments: Only in safe conditions. Danger of avalanches on Stieralpji, start early.

Ascent: From the ski area Leukerbad-Torrenthorn on the route 696 to the transition Schnydi; traverse northeastward on a terrace overlooking the lake Wysse. Much more beatuful with an exit through the SE-Couloir of the Torrenthorns (route 694b). Ascent above Stieralpji to point 2531 and above Schwarze See in a through. Fairly steep in the Galmpass (2865masl) and easy on Mauerhorn (2944masl).

Further ascent opportunities are available from Ferden over the Oberferdengletscher. The difference in altitude is 1570m and you have to plan approx. 5 hours. The starting point is Ferden in the Lötschental and in the steep level at Zem Tritt avalanche danger is possible. From Oberferdengletsche3r you notices anything.
Ascent a) From Ferden (1375masl) on route 691 to Ferdenrothorn to Seelein (2403masl). Through the southern series of throughs and peaks over 2576 point to Oberferdengletscher and on the right up into the Galmpass. Easily over the ridge back to the Matterhorn.
Ascent b) From Ferden over the Restipass, on route 703 in the pass (2626masl) and westward sloping against ledge which comes down from Restirothorn; the trapdoor starts at about 2580m. Short sleeply up and slightly to the left in a northerly direction, on the Mauerhorn (2944masl).

Descent: As all, from the top you can notch also short in a steep and exposed NE ridge to swingfrom there either on the Oberferdengletscher or southeastward down the valley of Restipass.
