“A super run along an exciting ridge and an optional scramble.”— Nick Wilder
Reach the Oberberghorn, and take the optional trail up to the top - though you could bypass it, consider it mandatory! Take the steps, climb through a tunnel, and emerge at one of the finest viewpoints in Europe. Relative to many of the other places around here, it's not crowded at all, and you might even have it to yourself.
Back on the main trail, continue along the more spectacular ridge trail to the Laucherhorn. You reach a promontory with good views of the imposing Faulhorn, which is a good place to stop for a break or turn around. It is worth going off trail a bit here (in front of the Laucherhorn) to a rocky outcrop that will make you feel like the "king of the hill."
Many continuation options exist, including a long one-way run all the way to the First lift high above Grindelwald.
