Not a prominent mountain, reaching over 3,000 m, in Bernese Alps. Easily achievable for every tourist. Is at the end of the ridge descending from the Unterbachhorn and Hochstock. From summit nice view to Aletschorn, Ober Aletsch Glacier and Rhone Valley with the surrounding Mischabel, Fletschhorn, Weisshorn and Matterhorn in Pennine Alps. Far from here you can see also other peaks in Pennine and even Mont Blanc. I would call this peak - an easy threethousander
