description

Approach

By the Jungfraubahn!

Route

From the Jungfraujoch go to the Mönchjochhütte (400m) then go up the rocks beneath the E ridge.
A faint pathleads easilyto the first snow ridge. Continue afterwards over loose rocks and steps to a steeper snow ridge, ( 4 metal protection points.)
Careful: this section can be icy. The airy snow ridge leads to the summit.

You can also start from the S ridge of the Mönch.

Descent

By the same route.

remarks

There is very little height gain if you start from the top of the Jungfraujoch railway (3400m). However, be aware of altitude effects.
Though not a difficult ascent, the summit ridge is impressive.

Sensitive areas
There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.

gear

Rope and a couple of ice screws
