Route: Lämmerenboden – Lämmeren Glacier – Wildstrubel Glacier

The Wildstrubel Glacier is a valley glacier in the Bernese Alps (canton of Valais). It is roughly 2.5 km long and begins at the southeastern flank of the Wildstrubel Massif between the actual Wildstrubel and the Mittlerer Gipfel at approx. 3,200 m above sea level. The glacier flows eastwards as a 1-km-wide ice stream and is flanked by the Schneehorn (3,178 m above sea level) in the south and the Grossstrubel (3,243 m above sea level) in the north. The glacier tongue currently ends at an altitude of approx. 2,550 m above sea level. The creek Lämmerenbach springs here and drains the valley towards the lake Daubensee.

During its peak in the Little Ice Age in the middle of the 19th century, the Wildstrubel Glacier still extended further down the valley and was connected with the Lämmeren Glacier, which flows down the Schwarzhorn. Back then, also the Steghorn Glacier extended up to the Wildstrubel Glacier.
