Totalphorn (2532m) N face Map

Riding down slope nº15 to Parsennhütte there is a little Bar on your right after Meierhoftälli chairlift, just go through and go around the left side of the artificial lake. From there walk up the west ridge of Totalphorn (2553m). It is an easy rocky ridge which will take you around 20 to 30 minutes to hike up. Once on the top turn to your left and look for an entry through the rocky ridge, you will have plenty of options, however there is usually a good entry if you walk further from the peak. The line is pretty easy, first the steep section and then a slighter flatter area to cruise till you straight down to slope nº15. It is usually a good slope due to its northerly orientation. It can get icy later on the season.
