12:15 Deixem el cotxe al parking i comencem a caminar. La pujada segueix les vies d'un antic cremallera (fora de servei)
13:00 Un cop passat l'antic cremallera trobem una font d'aigua molt fresqueta i seguim pujant pel fons de la vall.
15:45 Arribem al llac format pel desgel del glaciar, sota el refugi on ens dirigim. L'ultim tram es una pujada molt pronunciada.
17:00 Arribem al refugi Gruebenhutte, preparem el sopar i anem a dormir.

5:50 Sortim del refugi Gruebenhutte i despres de una bona baixada comencem a travessar el primer glaciar
9:00 Arribem al coll de Undri Bachlilicken i seguim cap al segon glaciar. Per pujar al coll cal escalar una mica, hi ha alguns ancoratges i passamans a les parts mes difícils.
10:15 Arribem al peu de la cresta (SSW Grat). Hi ha unes escales metaliques per sortir del glaciar i pujar al llom. Un cop al llom cal anar seguin la cresta grimpant, la dificultat es baixa però hi ha molta exposicio.
14:00 Fem el cim i veiem altres grups que pugen per la cresta est.
14:45 Ja de tornada, arribem a la diagonal de descens i comensem a buscar el camí
16:00 Toquem el segon glaciar i seguim el descens a peu
16:50 Arribem al coll de Undri Bachlilicken i ens perparem per baixar al al primer glaciar
19:45 Som fora de la zona de glaciars i roques, just al principi del llac de desgel
22:00 Arribem al cotxe

Cal tenir en compte que s'ha de creuar glaciars i escalar, porteu el material adequat.
Gruebenhutte no es un refugi lliure, es estil self-service però cal pagar. Com que es molt petit no sempre hi ha els guardes i cal portar-se el menjar, però s'ha de reservar amb antelacio per assegurar-se plaça https://gruebenhuette.ch/

12:15 We leave the car in the parking lot and start walking. The climb follows the tracks of an old rack railway (out of service)
13:00 Once past the old rack railway we find a fresh source of water and continue up the bottom of the valley.
15:45 We arrive at the lake formed by the melting of the glacier, under the refuge where we are heading. The last section is a very steep climb.
17:00 We arrive at the Gruebenhutte refuge, prepare dinner and go to sleep.

5:50 We leave the Gruebenhutte refuge and after a good descent we begin to cross the first glacier
9:00 We reach the Undri Bachlilicken pass and continue towards the second glacier. To reach the pass you have to climb a bit, there are some anchors and handrails in the more difficult parts.
10:15 We reach the rocky wall where we will start the ridge (SSW Grat). There are some metal stairs to get out of the glacier and up the ridge. Once on the ridge you have to follow it to the top, the difficulty is low but there is a lot of exposure.
14:00 We reach the summit and see other groups climbing the east ridge.
14:45 On our way back, we reach the shortcut diagonal to descent and begin to look for the path
16:00 We touch the second glacier and continue the descent on foot
16:50 We reach the Undri Bachlilicken pass and prepare to descend to the first glacier
19:45 We are outside the area of ​​glaciers and rocks, right at the beginning of the thaw lake
22:00 We arrive at the car

Keep in mind that you have to cross glaciers and climb, bring the right equipment.
Gruebenhutte is not a free refuge, it is self-service style but you have to pay. As it is very small there are not always guards and you must bring food, but you must book in advance to secure a place https://gruebenhuette.ch/
