The mountain lies in the range between the Maderanertal and the Val Russein and has two summits of nearly-identical height separated by a ca. 100 m deep saddle. The north summit (3,205 m) is 100 m southeast of the watershed and the border with the canton of Uri. It can be relatively easily ascended over the Ober Hüfifirn glacier.
The 3 m higher south summit can be reached in about an hour over the ridge connecting the summits, via a 6 hour scramble over the south ridge, or via the east ridge with up to UIAA IV+ climbing. The rarely visited true summit reportedly was only reached in 1905, very late for a mountain in the Alps and 39 years after the north summit had been scaled.
