Bernese Oberland Day 2: Konkordia hut to Finsteraarhorn Hut Map

At the base of the ladders on the Konkordiaplatz, head eastwards to the top of the Grunhornlucke pass (3280m, 2hours). Then descend a few hundred meters before using your skins again to ascend a peak called the Wyssnollen (3590m, 2-3 hours). Climbing this prominent peak yields magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and a fantastic north facing ski descent to the Finsteraarhorn hut (3048m).
