Gross Schärhorn 3295 m Alpinism
The Gross- and Chli Schärhorn form a striking double summit, sharp as a pair of scissors (hence the name schäre/scissors). The crevassed glaciers, the great open expanse around the Planurahütte and the steep summit structure all give a climb of the Schärhorn that proper alpine feel. Often climbed, both summer and winter. One of the landmarks of the Schächental (valley).
