Mutteristock (R.155 and failed attempt at R.156b)
I had planned to try Mutteristock for this week. The normal path (R.155) is a classic T3, with varied landscape including fields, forests, scree and rock fields. However, I wanted to try one of the alternative paths (R.156[-/a/b/c]) from the West side. The problem is, most of these paths are described very briefly in the SAC...

Vorder Glarnisch

It is also less tiring and more accessible than other T4s like Haute Cime.   The access point is through Glarus. Then one can:   (1) Walk up from 500m....
