Tour description

Alpine footpath leaving from «Im underen Loichbiel». Exceptionally impressive mountainous walk into the valley of the Upper Grindelwald Glacier up to the Gleckstein SAC hut on the western flank of the Wetterhorn. The slope through which the «Ischpfad» leads is so steep though, that it is only recommended for those who are absolutely sure-footed and not suffering from vertigo.
