Ascent to Ulrichshorn from Bordier hut
Ascent to Ulrichshorn from the Bordierhutte, marked in red. Most of it is just glacier, the dashed line are some crevasses / seracs but not hard to cross. On the final slope we needed crampons. The blue line indicates the ascent to the Bordier hut and shows where the Ried glacier must be crossed.

Image from Google Earth, since a few weeks they have the swiss alps in high detail. Not all summits show up as they should (marked with an asterisk), but most of them look remarkably accurate.

High res version looks much better, I'll blow up the font size some day when I find the time.

I'm not sure that I understand the question. In google earth you find this where the mountain is? (obviously ;-) Perhaps you are using a web interface which does not allow you to view 3D? Or are you using the application but don't know how to go to 3D view? In this latter case, hold down the middle mouse button and move the mouse. Finally, I drew the route and peak names manually with photoshop...

I hope that I answered your question like this?

Cheers,

Rick
