Route description

Steingletscher - Tierberglihütte

Follow the valley in the direction of Umpol, then bear left up to the ridge behind Chööbägli (2134 m). From here contour round onto the Steingletscher. Follow the curve of the Steingletscher up and round to the W (steep - 35° between 2400 and 2500 m, zone most threatened by rock fall!). Continue SW in more gentle terrain to 2700 m, after which you can arc westwards over to the hut at 2798 m.

Alternativroute Umgehung Gefahrengebiet Bockberg

Für den Winterzustieg zur Tierberglihütte wird die Route über Umpol - Sommerweg Tierberglihütte - Punkt 2427 und die anschliessende Nordflanke weiter östlich empfohlen. Schlüsselstelle stellt die Steilstufe zwischen 2600 und 2700 m dar. Diese Route ist deutlich steiler und exponierter als der Zustieg über den Gletscher, es ist unbedingt die Lawinengefahr zu beachten.

Variant: from Obermad

From Obermad, if the street to Steingletscher has not been cleared, ascend the main road to Bim Sagli and continue, or take the old road more steeply up through the forest to north of the Feldmoshubel, then join the main road again at P. 1688 and follow this E to Steingletscher.
