The Spaghetti Round is an impressive but quite demanding high-altitude traverse in the Valais, on which twelve 4,000-metre peaks are climbed. Wide glaciers, narrow ridges and airy climbing passages make the tour from the Klein Matterhorn to the Dufourspitze and from there down towards the Gornergrat a high-alpine undertaking that is only recommended for experienced mountaineers.
