Thanks to Frank Verwijs for adding this peak.
This peak rises directly south of two higher peaks: Bishorn (4153m), and Weisshorn (4505m). The ascent is most of the time done from the Turtmann-hutte, over the glacier and its definitely a straightforward one. It can be busy in mid-season for many not too technical climbers use this mountain to acclimatize for higher easy mountains in the Alps such as Bishorn, Dom. The east side is very steep and much more difficult, here there are no cabins, and you could well be on your own the whole day, but I don't know if its dangerous. It seems to me it is (falling ice of small high glaciers)
