An easy, but not simple achievable "Almost three thousand" on the sound side of the Bernese Alps with breathtaking views across the nearby Balmhorn group, on the green Rhone Valley and the Valais Alps. The two descents on the SW flank and through the SE-Couloir are not bad; with a daily ticket of the ski area Leukerbad-Torrent both slopes can be enjoyed on the same day. Who does not have enough yet, can climb the Schafberg or Majinghorn.
