Ridge path torrent:


Flatly: Rinderhütte-Vorsummit Torrenthorn-Schafberg- Rinderhütte

From the Rinderhütte mountain station to the lower summit, follow the same path as on the Torrenthorn. From there the path leads in a southerly direction all along the ridge up to the Schafberg.




It's not a via ferrata, but this part of the tour requires sure-footedness and a head for heights. The entire ridge has been climbed many times in the past, but it was renovated by the torrent railways a few years ago. Throughout the tour you can enjoy a wonderful view of several four-thousanders such as Mont-Blanc, Dent-Blanche, Weisshorn, Bishorn, Zinalrothorn, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa area, Mischabel Group and many more.

From the Schafberg, follow the blue markings in a south-westerly direction down the slope and back to the Rinderhütte.
