The ridge facing the camera running almost straight down from just left of the summit is the tougher Ferpecle Ridge

The Fine South Ridge Of The Dent Blanche Seen From Above Zermatt

The Dent Blanche hut is situated on the far side of the easier angled snowy lower section of the ridge and accessed from the Val d'Herens / Evolene side. Access from this Zermatt side via the Schonbiel Hut is long, loose and less popular.
