is the 21st highest of the Alps, and is basically the first subsidiary peak of

Nadelhorn. Mostly Stecknadelhorn is climbed after Nadelhorn (ridge wandering with some rocky

sections). From the summit of Nadelhorn it takes normally less than 1 hour to reach the summit. The icy side of the

Dom (4545) blocks the view to the south.
