Strahlegghorn

One of the first mountains being climbed in the Berner Oberland, probably by local herdsmen, long before the official first climbers. The Strahlegghorn is accessible via the Schreckhornh├╝tte. From the hut you have to traverse a glacier, walk over moranic terrain to the Strahleggpass. Then scrambling up a rock ridge to the summit which offers spectacular views.
