Thanks to Fred Spicker for adding this peak.

The Hochschijen is a small granitic peak located just northeast of the Bergsee Hut above Göscheneralp in the Urner Alpen. The peak offers excellent climbing and a relatively quick and easy descent.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Hochschijen in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
