From the Konkordiahütte (Normal route) Grünegghorn 3860 m
- 3–4 h, 1150 m
The Grünegghorn 3860m stands in the shadow of the higher Gross Grünhorn (4043 m). It is also crossed during an ascent of the Gross Grünhorn from the Konkordiahütte. But the Grünegghorn is worthwhile as an independent goal. The pre-summit 3787m, also known as the "ski summit" is easily accessible from the Konkordiahütte over simple ice and snow slopes. The main summit, almost 80 meters higher is connected to the pre-summit by a short section of ridge.
From the Konkordiahütte (2850 m) descend the numerous metal stairs down to Konkordiaplatz and then head east over the Grüneggfirn to about 3000 m. Now turn northwards over the steep, often scarred glacier slopes and finally up through a pronounced couloir into the saddle northeast of P. 3475. Climb over a steep snow slope and follow the broad snowy ridge to the pre-summit of the Grünegghorn (P. 3787).
From the pre-summit or "ski summit", climb along the exposed snow and rock ridge to gain the main summit of the Grünegghorn (3860 m).
Down the ascent route.
- Departure point
This set of peaks, including the Gross and Klein Grünhorn, the Grünegg, Grünegghorn and Grünhörnli got their names due to the rocks of the summits consisting of amphibolites, which contain mainly greenish pigments. The Finsteraarhorngruppe also consists of amphibolites.
