Featured photo of Rohrbachstein

The highest point on the main Bernese Oberland chain between the Wildhorn (3248m) and Wildstrubel (3243m), the Rohrbachstein is a great viewpoint for the Pennine Alps to the South as well as the local peaks of the Western Bernese Oberland. Usually ascended from Lenk, to the North, via Iffigenalp. Start along the path towards the Rawil Pass then turn off to the Wildstrubel hut (4.5hrs), from where it is approx. 1 hour to the summit. The easiest route from the hut is South-east to the Weisshornlucke, then South-west around the North side of the summit block. The final rocks are then climbed with a short scramble up the South West side.
