A long glacier trek leads to the Adler Pass, from where the Strahlhorn is usually climbed. The ascent is straight forward until the last 150m, where a moderate rock scramble leads to the summit.

The Strahlhorn is a fairly remote peak situated at the southern end of the chain of mountains dividing the Mattertal and Saastal valleys, in the Pennine Alps of Switzerland. Its position is close to the heart of the biggest collection of 4000m peaks in the Alps. It is also very close to the international border between Switzerland and Italy – and offers a unique view point into both countries. In fact as a view point the summit of this mountain is second to none – and it needs to be, to be worth the effort involved to make one of the long arduous approaches to reach it.
