    Titlis rises to 3,238 meters and is situated in the Uranian Alps. It’s part of the ski area of the same name. It is a not too difficult summit, but the hike is very long. Vidéo: https://youtu.be/c-1LXKlvCzI

    Big Day, sustained climbing all across and back across the ridge. The walk up is long and the screw up to the saddle is hard work.
