This day is a great finish to the trip, climbing the Abeni Flue (3962m, 4 hours). Although not technical or steep it does give wonderful glacier skiing and brilliant views of the surrounding Swiss Valais from the summit. Descending back to the Hollandia hut and the Lotschenlucke gives access to the classic alpine ski run into the Lotschental Valley, with over 2000m descent!
