Thanks to Terrill Thompson for adding this peak.
Balmenhorn is rock island located southwest of Schwarzhorn on the Monte Rosa massif. It is neither a spectacular peak nor a popular climb except among climbers who aspire to climb all 4000 meter peaks in the European Alps. The summit can be reached easily from the Gnifetti Hut.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
There is one trip report for Balmenhorn.
