A high point on the lengthy granite ridge above the Oberalp pass, composed of giant, near-vertical granite slabs lined up one behind the next. The south/southeast face of the Gross Schijen gets plenty of sun until very late in the day.
See general description for climbing at the Oberalp pass. Use the east-west trail running above the Lutersee to get as close as possible to the southeast pillar, then hike/scramble up to the base.
