Daniel at the last steep section of Obergabelhorn north ridge
In the background you can see the Grand Gendarm tower which must be climbed over. Even there are fixed ropes on it, it's not so easy to come up.

Hoping to climb this route from the Rothorn hut next year, looks like a really beautiful ridge.

Re: Beautiful

I can recommend the way just like we did: There are nice places for tents below Rothorn hut, also water available. As warmup is Zinalrothorn a good training. It is shorter and easier than Obergabelhorn.
Have a safe climb!

Re: Beautiful

Just recognized that you have already climbed Zinalrothorn.Well, from the Rothorn hut there are not so many possibilities, maybe the Schaligrat on Weisshorn. That should be a big challange!

Re: Beautiful

Thanks for your advice kiss, I was hoping to do the Breithorn as a warm up.
The plan is to do the NE Face of the Lenzpitze and traverse to the Nadelhorn, Hornli Ridge Matterhorn, then the Obergabelhorn, weather depending !
