Route description

Burchser Malbun (ski lift) – P. 1485 – Rosswis

From Berghaus Malbun (1371  m) ascend to P. 1485 or take the ski lift. Now follow the mountain trail north-westward through the sparse forest of Schiben to reach Obersäss (1743  m). Continue on the summer trail towards Hanenspil. From ca. 1840  m traverse the fairly steep (up to 38°) south-east face. If in doubt about the avalanche risk, traverse Hanenspil (1888  m). Continue south-westward via «Bi den Seen» to Isisizgrat (2015 m). From the ridge ski westward down to Riet (ca. 1900  m) in the Isisiz bowl. Re-attach the climbing skins to your skis and ascend south-westward via P. 1922 to reach the ridge of Alt Alp (2148 m). Continue southward following the north-east ridge to the summit of Isisizer Rosswis.
