Route Description

From the west, the starting point is Nätschen, a small ski lift refuge up on 1,842 m just above Andermatt. From there, you continue on the road up against Oberalp pass until you cross the small stream called Oberalpreuss close to a small dam. Leaving to road, you cross the hillsides of the neighbour mountain Rossbodenstock, entering the valley called Unteralptal and continue gaining height through grass covered slopes southbound until you reach the west ridge at pt. 2,298 m called Six Madun egg. The ridge is easy and consists of grass and big rocks. Up on the ridge at 2,749 m there is a small plateau, you turn right and follow the ridge up to the summit.


Essential Gear

Although no real exposed passages, a rope can be a good thing to bring along as extra saftey.
