Climbing on the South Ridge of the Lagginhorn  

This is one of the many towers traverse on an ascent of the Lagginhorn's South Ridge Route.

The Mischabel chain of peaks which separate the Saas from the Zermatt valley are behind. From right to left are the Lenzspitze (furthest bump to the right), Dom (highest summit wholly within Switzerland), the Täschhorn, and the flat summit of the Alphubel. To the left of the Alphubel is the summit of the Breithorn, poking up behind the Mischabel peaks.
