Ridge trail Torrent:
Ring route: Rinderhütte-Vorgipfel Torrenthorn-Schafberg- Rinderhütte From the mountain resort Rinderhütte to the pre-summit, follow the same path as Torrenthorn. From here the path leads south along the ridge to Schafberg.
Although it is not a via ferrata, this part of the tour requires some surefootedness and no fear of heights. The entire ridge was often engaged in the past, but a few years ago it was renovated by the Torrentbahnen. On the whole circuit, you can enjoy a magnificent view of several four thousand meters peaks such as Mont Blanc, Dent-Blanche, Weisshorn, Bishorn, Zinalrothorn, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, the Mischabel group and many others. From Schafberg, follow the blue trail south on the slope and return to the Rinderhütte.

Relatively challenging mountain tour. In the middle part of a vertical pilaster must be committed. There are three ladders and a board. In addition some rope safety at the most difficult places in the wall. Dizziness and sure-footedness required. Above then just easy.
