Alpine round tour for fit mountain walkers to the free-standing pyramid Uri Rotstock (T4).

The Uri Rostock is a striking, two-coloured summit pyramid at the south end of Lake Lucerne. It is worth the long hike to the summit not only for the view of the lake, but also for the view of the Blüemlis glacier opposite. The summit can be reached either from the east via an alpine trail from the Chlital or from the west via a mountain trail from Grosstal. The best option is a combination of the two routes with a change of valley at the Sassigrat. This makes for a scenically varied loop. If you start from Musenalp, the summit can be reached in one day thanks to the cable car for fit mountaineers. Overnight accommodation in the Gitschenhörelih or the Biwaldalp make it possible to divide the tour into two days. The approach from the Musenalp leads over the remains of the Chlital firn. This no longer has any crevasses, but crampons and ice axes may be needed for the steep ascent in icy conditions. The route from Grosstal is easier and is therefore more suitable for the descent.
