4107m. Probably the shortest route in the Bernese Oberland and definatly the easiest way to bag a 4000 er. A short glacier traverse brings you to the foot of the ridge where straightforward climbing takes you the full length of the ridge,get the early train from the valley as this is a busy route. The final section can be corniced, so remain on the South side.This climb backs on the eiger summit and the views are breathtaking.

Descent route from the Monch. Clear calm day. Rocks toward the end but fast descent straight to the Monch Hutte.

As a descent after climbing the Nollen Spur. Very difficult as it was too late in the day and the snow was soft

A short gacier traverse brings you to the foot of the ridge where straight forward climbing takes you all the way to the top,probably the easiest way to bag a 4000 er in the Bernese Oberland.Stunning views of the Eiger summit, Alecheand the Jungfrau.

Climbed on our ski touring trip. We saw somebody start an avalanch down the steep face to the R of the ridge when we were going up - luckily the managed to get out of the top of it before they went all the way to the glacier.

My first Alpine adventure.Stuck in the Monch hut for 3 days and 2 nights, waiting for the snow to stop! Even the guides did not go up after that dump. We went down very depressed, but that was my first alpine lesson. Fantastic experience.

Climbed in the afternoon, after sitting in a Grindelwald bar all morning watching for a break in the weather. Spent the night on the floor of an extremely full Monchjoch hut then headed off to the Jungfrau.
