Day 5: We ascend over the Grünhornlücke, the high pass between the Aletsch and Fiesch valleys and make an ascent of the Wyssnollen (3595m) before descending to the Finsteraarhornhütte.

Day 6: We make the traverse to the Oberaarjochhütte with an ascent of the Gross-Wannenhorn (3905m) being the highlight of the day.
