Sustenhorn 3'503 m a.s.l.
The Sustenhorn awaits its many visitors with the reward of a wonderful panorama. In summer, the climb is a simple high-altitude tour, although the glacier is full of crevices in parts. In late spring, the Sustenhorn is the season finale for many ski tourers. Climbing the Gwächtenhorn and Sustenhorn from Hotel Steingletscher in a day is a test of fitness. Those who like it relaxed can make a stop at the Tierbergli hut.
On the Bernese side, the climb is not so steep and glaciated, on the Urn side the beautiful east ridge stands out, waiting to be climbed. A further possibility is the Chli Sustenhorn, a high-altitude tour off the beaten track in a wild setting.
