The Giraffe route is arguably one of the best, but should only be visited with a guide. Take a high traverse across the top of the Gurschen Glacier. It offers up a route right down the spine of the Gemmstock, with exposure on both the north and south sides, and is packed with mandatory airs, tight couloirs and gargantuan faces. It ends in the neck of the Giraffe.
This is a quite wide, almost endless, colouir with even pitch. It has some of the best skiing in Andermatt and is often untracked because of the avalanche danger.
