From the West (Normal route) Wildi Frau 3273 m
- PD, 3b
- 2:30–2:30 h, 450 m
The normal route to the Wildi Frau (Wild Woman!) is a short but sweet half-day tour from the Blüemlisalphütte. From the summit you can enjoy breathtaking views into the Gamchi valley, as well as gain insight into conditions on the routes of the Blüemlisalp. An ideal warm up peak for those planning a bigger tour the following day, the Wildi Frau is also a tour in its own right. It is even possible as a day tour from Griesalp (or Kandersteg if your feeling masochistic). The crux of the tour is the rock band just below the summit. The pitches are well secured with bolts and can be abseiled in descent. A 30 m rope is enough.
From the Blüemlisalphütte (2834m) climb the wide scree slope on a clear trail to a flattening west of the water intake. Blue-white-blue markings.
From the flattening by the water intake follow the blue-white-blue marked trail over a first steep step, direction southeast. Pass below an ice field and then turn to the left (northeast) to reach a second steep step that leads to a flattening. Here you leave the marked path (cairns) and totter up the scree slope towards a obvious corner system in the rock band.
Follow the line of ascent.
