Gällihorn is the northernmost point of the Üeschenegrat that stands between the valleys of Üschene and Spittelmatte. The north face of Gällihorn drops steeply down to the Kander valley, but the ascent from the Üeschene (the back path) is less exposed. The approach to the shoulder (2165m) is still long but from the summit (2284m) there are awesome views to the east, north and west.
Times might change according to the weather and the group’s ability.
