Fundelkopf

The Fundelkopf is a popular mountain in the R├Ątikon. It can be accessed via the Niggenkopfbahn from Brand. Starting from the Amantschenjoch (2030 m) the ascent becomes more difficult and is only recommended for people free of giddiness and with some previous "real" mountaineering experience. Especially the very last leg before the summit has its perfidies which I personally would rate UIAA III+. During my ascent as a young boy many years ago, I saw people shivering there. Do not take this route lightly.
