North Ridge of the North Summit (Normal route) Hinter Tierberg 3444 m
- PD, 2a
- 3–4 h, 650 m
- 2–2:30 h, 650 m
In the heavily glaciated mountain arena above the Steingletscher stand the oft visited and rather accessible summits of Susten- and Gwächtenhorn. In the shadow of these popular destinations, the Tierberg summits (Vorder, Mittler and Hinter Tierberg) live more of a wallflower existence. This trio, however, certainly offer both rewarding and exciting routes. The Hinter Tierberg in particular is alpinistically, an interesting and versatile tour waiting for repeats. The varied glacier climb to Tierberglimi, the exposed ridge tranverse in the area of the Tierberg saddle and the steep final climb through the rocks to the north summit delight the mountaineer's heart. If you are looking for peace and seclusion in a magnificent mountain world, you'll be sure to find it at the northern summit of Hinter Tierberg!
From the Tierbergli Hut (2795 m), climb over the fractured Steigletscher to the southwest, and gain the Mittler Tierberg (3308 m) without too much trouble.
A largely vacant snow ridge leads over to Tierbergsattel (3308 m). Continue over the firn, and onto the rocks beneath the northern summit, which is reached by easy climbing (2a, some bolts) through a couloir.
Follow the route of ascent.
