Simplon Pass - You start on the Simplon Pass at 2,005 m and head west, across the plains past the hamlet of Hopsche into the traverse on the southern slope of the Tochuhorn. Later you turn in a north-westerly direction and continue up the valley between Tochuhorn and Straffelgrat (in a zigzag). The wide east ridge is now steep and on foot to the summit.
Simplon Pass - The descent is via the ascent track. Depending on the assessment of the dangers, this can also vary.
Bielti / Simplonpass - In good and very safe conditions, instead of the traverse under the Tochuhorn, the descent down to Bielti is a good idea. At the end, this requires a return to the Simplon Pass of around 30 minutes.
