Route Climbed: From the town Stechelberg (922 meters) Date Climbed: 1999 and 2003
First time I walked up from Stechelberg (922 meters high) it took me 4 hours and 20 minutes to reach the summit. In 2003 it took me a bit longer. The sign in Stechelberg says something like 6 hours 45 minutes though, but you can do it way faster. It's a nice walk from this town, and because it is the longest route to the top as far as I know not many people start from there. I reccommend it though. Both times I reached the summit the visibility was near zero, so I wouldn't know what the view is like unfortunately. Still I enjoyed the walk. It's very doable in one day, just start early in the morning.
