Here the elegant NW Ridge of the Fiescherhorn is seen from the climbs base camp of the Monchjoch Hut. This route provides an elegant and direct ascent to the summit where good snow conditions, accurate cramponing and a steady head for exposure are all required. The Fiescher-sattel can just be seen on the centre far right. The SE ridge (PD+) can be descended to access this and complete the traverse to the Hinter Fiescherhorn (PD).
