Fixed rope routes
From the Anenhütte, follow the moraine to an altitude of 2,760 metres above sea level and then head west into the uppermost couloir of the south-west ridge. The first two pitches run on the plates to the right of the couloir and end at the ridge, from where you reach the first and only tower using the 3rd to 5th pitches. Climb the tower on its left side using the 6th pitch then following a flatter section of ridge as far as the 11th pitch, from where the ridge becomes steeper to the summit of the Jägiknubel. As you near the summit, the number of bolts decreases and you should take equipment to secure yourself to be on the safe side!
The south-east ridge, with the same grade as the ascent, is ideal for the descent. There are three abseiling points in the lower section. Return from the foot of the wall across the moraine to the Peter Tscherrig Anenhütte and then select one of the many hiking trails to return to the Fafleralp.
