Hill features

When you drive from the Wallis up the Rhone river to its source, there is one remarkable ice clad mountain in front of you, that will haunt you for a full hour - Galenstock. If you drive from Italy over the Gotthard pass, a different looking overwhelming shape shows, but it is still the Galenstock. It is the guardian of the Rhone glacier that is the source of one the main European rivers that flows into the Mediterranean near Marseille.

Good topo here.
