The Route starts from the Flu Alp hut and follows the normal route as for climbing the Rimpfischhorn. At an altitude of ca 3400m, instead of climbing up the south wall for following the normal Rimpfischhorn's route, keep on walking all the way staying on the right, almost on the east side wall's ridge. After a small climb (200m) on snow/ice of an apr 50° steepness, you will be facing a kind of melted snow/ice waterfall falling almost directly into the crevasse!
