Thanks to Frank Verwijs for adding this peak.
One of the easiest 4000 m peaks in the Alps. The normal route to the summit leads along the northwest ridge coming from the Adlerpass. The Allalinglacier was once so big, that it blocked the upper part of the Saas-valley, and created a lake. When the ice barrier collapsed, it caused severe destruction in Saas-valley.
