Tour description


Simplonpass – From the Simplonpass at 2’005 m go west, over the plain areas at the Hopsche hamlet and into the traverse of the southern slope of the Tochuhorn. Further up, continue in northwestern direction and ascend in the valley between Tochuhorn and Straffelgrat to the Üsseri Nanzlicke. Over the broad ridge you will reach the summit of the Spitzhorli.


Simplonpass – The descent is via the ascent route. This may vary depending on the risk assessment.

Bielti –  If conditions are good and safe an alternative descent route to the Bielti is possible at the location of the traverse below the Tochuhorn. This will require a ascent of approx. 30 minutes back up to the Simplonpass.
