Between here and the glacier tongue you will find red numbers on rocks and stones as in the picture. They indicate in which year the glacier ended where. Since 1893, the level of the glacier tongue has been measured annually. In the pictures you can see a graphic of the over one hundred years of retreat.

In the video you will first find an animation of glacier retreat since 1958 and then Christian Barandun, Regional Manager of the Cantonal Office for Forests and Natural Hazards, tells you more about glacier surveying and glacier retreat.


From here, look towards Kesch-Hütte in the north, the route leads through the hollow on the right onto the small saddle. As for the pictures, it has a photo that will help you find the way.
