Thanks to Lin Piao and Bernd Ne for adding this peak.
Nordend is the northmost peak of the Monte Rosa massif. It is the third highest peak in Europe, excluding the Caucasus. The ascent is 6-8 hours from the Monte Rosa hut. Most of the time is on glacier. The last part includes some modest climbing - 2+ - with some exposed parts.
Thanks to Lin Piao and Bernd Ne for this description.
