Gspaltenhorn 3436 m Please select a discipline

Craggy and fractured rock massif, which falls with a huge steep flank into the Sefinental. Easily accessible and frequently visited from the west, via the Bütlassesattel. The route over the SW ridge and the Roti Zend remains a big alpine challenge and should not be underestimated. This, as well as all other routes are, even by today's standards, tricky and committing and therefore rarely approached.
