The obvious ridge close to the Almageller Hut is a worthwhile climb on good rock. It contains moves of IV, although is mainly grade III.

OG 19 Aug, 2019 AltLd dnf Started out early on the Wet Horlini, which is not recommended as it is very slippery indeed. We got off route on what would have been HS/VS, if there were less water on everything, which I slipped off on lead but thankfully didn’t go far. By this time the Horlini was starting to get Dri but we had lost our psyche and abbed off. Keen to come back for this one.

Francis Hardy 19 Jul, 2019 AltLd O/S So much fun - were quite slow behind a British guided group and then needed to brush up our abseil efficiency after the gendarme but the beauty of a route like this is you can take your time and enjoy - climbed both grade IV cruxes Kthe crack and the Gendarme) which were definitely worthwhile. All the rock is superb. Would say AD+ technical climbing but in a relatively safe and uncommiting setting.

Mr Fuller 14 Jul, 2017 AltLd rpt Fantastic route! Lots and lots of great climbing. Backed off this a few years ago but we'd got a bit off route: after the initial easy slabs it goes up to a bolt but not up the crack directly above said bolt. Instead, go right and then more bolts and a sublime steep bit appear.

Robin Woodward 3 Jul, 2016 Lead dnf Attempted in the afternoon after walking in to the Almagellerhutte that morning. Nice moves on lovely rock. Route finding was a bit difficult at times (try and look out for bolts of all types), the Plaisir Ost Schweiz guide has a better topo than that in either the hut or the Oberwallis guide. Ended up descending just before the second summit due to not wanting to miss dinner. Descent line was further along than first expected, but fine on a single 50 once found (look for the cairn on the terrace below the initial two rap's). Also don't trust some random South American's who tell you that you should be rap'ing down the route they're on whilst they swear about the fact they can't find any bolts for their final pitches!!!
