Route Description

Klein TschuggenEast ramp

The shortest access to Tschuggen is taking the track from Kleine Scheidegg (2061m) to Männlichen in N.W. of the col. The track goes under Lauberhorn to reach a large curve to arrive to Honegg (2170m) a small col. This is the best place to turn to the East face of our peak (left side). Out of path we'll search the best places in the wide ramp to walk. Generally in the first section we'll have the reference of some towers of ski-lift to the pre-summit called litle Tschuggen, really a small rocky formation, without aspect of summit. The last part has a very hard slope, it's very pronounced, but generally we'll see a path in right side near of the bottom of the conic top. After this hard ramp we'll reach the summit, an impressive place with amazing views.

In the return we can climb Lauberhorn, using the description of route from Männlichen of this peak.

Essential Gear

Crampons and ice-axe early on the season if the east face has snow.
