Exposure

Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.

Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.

High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.

Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.

Description

Leaving Furi and all its restaurants below means you find the delightful little restaurant Hermetji perched on the side of the mountain, with beautiful views across Gornergrat, Sunnegga and Zermatt.

Once you can tear yourself away from here, carry on up but look out for marmots and the odd chamois on the open land.

The Schwarzsee lift is often open during the summer months and affords an easy way down to Zermatt, or alternatively can take you further up to Trockener Steg.
