Monch - Oberland

Monch - Oberland

The Monch (Monk) separates the Jungfrau (young girl) from the advances of the Eiger (Ogre). It is one of the most accessible 4000m peaks in the Bernese Oberland, reached easily from the Jungfraujoch or Monchjoch Hutte. It combines easy scrambling with a sensational snow ridge to the summit. The monarch of the Oberland, the Finsteraahorn lies in the background.
