Thanks to Roy Lindman for adding this peak.

Wellenkuppe is a picturesque mountain, easy to reach from Zermatt when following Edelweiss path. The nearest hut is Rothorn Hutte on it's east side near Trift, located on the ridge leading on the Zinalrothorn. Rothorn Hutte is mainly used whilst climbing Zinal Rothorn. Nice views to neighbour mountains Ober Gabelhorn, Zinal Rothorn and Untere Gabelhorn.

Thanks to Roy Lindman for this description.
